edit pathfinder shapes
Editing a pathfinder ( Add, subtract, intersect, etc.) would be beneficial to create the perfect shape without building new shapes or paths. Example: location pin - If the circle within the teardrop is off by 2px, I can select the circle shape and move it instead of selecting anchor points.
You can edit the individual, original shapes that make up a boolean path by double-clicking it, just like double-clicking to edit inside a “regular” group.
The feature needs to be added to the Windows version also

That example is using the teardrop and circle with a subtract pathfinder element. Acting like a group object instead of a single object.
