Delete Topology does not function as it used to.  Please return it's previous functionality.

 

For example, I have this object. There is a non-planar rectangle split by an (orange) segment.  I want to delete the segment and reinsert it (red) so that I can use Extend to Face on the (blue) arrow to the blue triangle to make the face planar.  The problem is that when I Delete Topology on the orange segment, the two triangular faces are deleted.  I know I can use Object Doctor to close the hole but it closes it with the segment back in it's original position.  I can also delete the faces and draw the blue triangle, but that involves selecting more tools and snaps and is a lot more steps.  I want to have the segment deleted creating a non-planar rectangle which I can then split as required.

 

Please return the original functionality to this very useful tool.

I get emails for this forum.

 

Reported this as a bug a while back.

 

We need both the delete topology and the Delete Geometry functionality back.

I don't care if it is bundled into one tool that requires a modifier key or not... as long as the functionality is back!
