Photoshop CC: "Delete Anchor Point" does not dissolve Live Shapes

Just a minor bug that's easy to reproduce:

1) Draw any Live Shape, e.g a rectangle.
2) Right-click on any anchor point in the shape and select "Delete Anchor Point". Note that this does not affect the "Delete Anchor Point" tool!
3) Move or transform the shape in any way.

Photoshop will restore it to its original form (i.e add back the deleted anchor point(s)) since it still thinks it's a Live Shape.

Thanks for catching this. It looks like the Delete Anchor Point command isn't properly invalidating the live shape. I'll go ahead and log it.

As you noted, the workaround is to use the Delete Anchor Point tool (or Pen tool with Auto Add/Delete enabled).

You're probably aware of this, but just to make sure: As far as I can tell this hasn't been fixed in CC 14.1.
