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
Can you please turn off this functionality - this is so useless and extremely annoying. Plus there is a shortcut for turning shapes into paths and I am pretty sure that is enough. The amount of situations when I had to redo shapes because I accidentally double clicked on it (when trying to get to a multi grouped object) is tremendous. Once again it is a stupid functionality TURN IT OFF please. I got emotional ;)
Yes, this is so annoying. Really unprofessional.
I hate when this happens, more so when it happens in a component and when you resize it goes all wonky
It'd be nice to convert things to shape using a button and not a double click
That's a serious problem for me, too. Once the conversion has occurred accidentally and the file is saved you'll never have the chance to revert it.
3 years now.. still an issue..
Please fix this, it is very very annoying...
Im having trouble with rounding borders. After sometime, the option to round a border/corner of an object is gone and that is because of the double click to path feature.
I'd like to be able to still edit my object's border radius/roundness even after it is set to path OR be able to roll back an object from Path to normal previous to path state at any point in time.
My team and I are having a very hard time with not being able to round our object's borders after we have made multiple changes to that object/file.
How come they still haven't fixed this issue?
sometimes double clicking a rectangle doesn't convert from path to its original shape.
I wanna be able to keep the border-radius(rounding corners) feature to stay active even after I convert something to path.
This is so frustrating. ADOBE FIX THIS SH*T.
This is a serious pain. The double-click to convert to path causes a lot more problems than it solves - no need for it!
Same!!! Please fix!!
Errr, agreed. Auto convert on a double click seems counter-intuitive and causes me to have to recreate lots of boxes...
Still happening...super frustrating! Please fix, XD!
they still havent fixed this?

I didn't get it that how and when the shape gets converted into a path and my rest of the time is consumed finding this mystery that where is the shape with the roundness option?? It is a big issue and probably considering it as a bug @adobe if you are listening please fix it as I face this problem many times when I want to check the roundness of the shape.
Please fix this.

When I'm dealing with a pretty large set of groups/layers/symbols, and I need to gain focus on a particular element in this tree of items, I have to do a lot of double clicking to focus and refocus and deep focus... until I finally reach that item. In this process, I found myself accidentally converting objects into paths; this has throw a wrench in a lot of my work.
Is there a way to avoid this without having to lock ever single item of every single group/layer/symbol/etc...?
XD keeps making me think I'm being stupid but I keep finding threads like this... Please XD - I just want you to be better...
Please have a prompt to convert to shape option. I would argue that this "convert to shape" is more of a hindrance than anything. For a program made for UI/UX, this is a major UX issue.
Why does "undo" not work for this accidental conversion? WTF? This is costing me so much time. I am testing Xd on a new project, but this may drive me back to Sketch.

Gosh!!!... I thought I was stupid, filling randomly my mocks with uneditable paths!! But not... is the insane amount of usability flaws that makes me feel like a stupid to keep on using XD.
And worst of all... only 21 votes for request!!! There must be out there so many users suffering from real mind issues... asking them selves what the hell they did wrong.
Really... this "adobexd.uservoice.com" is absolutely hidden, and few people knows exists. Worst of all, each time I need to ask for new issues, I've to login again and again, it doesn't save my user profile... good tactic to make give up the angry users.
