Return path to original shape if converted accidentally
accidental double clicks turn my rectangles into editable paths, then if i click the path point and realize i double clicked ( instead of single click) I press undo, but at that point undo will not turn the path back to a rectangle every time. so the shape remains a path, I feel like there should be a better (more accident proof) option to turn the shape to a path

I also feel this is a massive problem easily overlooked, as accidental double clicks happen too easilly - double click should not change a shape to path in my opinion. My main reasoning is that since double-clicks are already used to "go deeper" and enter a group, going one level too far and transforming happens without notice.
Most of the time I only later notice I can't change border radius anymore and have to re-draw the shape.
Prefer that the shape>path conversion happens either in the right-click menu or by a slightly more difficult combination, like having to hold shift additionally.
Can't believe this is still an issue! This needs to be fixed ASAP!
Yes, agreed. This should not convert to path unless you actually make a change. This is especially obnoxious when it disables you from specifying corner radius.
I totally agree, this is the worst user experience. Note that when objects get converted to paths it affects some of the CSS available such as border-radius in "share for development" and when you export to Zeplin

I only noticed this from the icon in the layers panel. Shouldn't this happen only when using the pen tool? Or since this is happening by default, how do I turn rectangle paths into shapes?
Scanning all the right click menus, and nothing can convert it back. In this case, I make an identical shape to replace which is not convenient.

Please, make this possible. :(
I find it extremely difficult to work with Rectangles in XD due to that. I work with a lot of groups and click a lot on groups which very, very often leads to accidental conversions. It's extremely frustrating to see a lot of your rectangles converted to shapes when you don't expect it.
