    Disable automatic switching of the Pen tool in After Effects

    capricaqua

      I'm looking for the option to temporarily or permanently disable the automatic switching behavior that happens within the pen tool in Aftereffects while creating a mask.

      In Photoshop there is a function to do this and here is the exert from the manual that explains how to do it.

       

      There has to be a way to accomplish the same inside AE.

       

       

      "Disable or temporarily override automatic Pen tool switching
      You can override automatic switching of the Pen tool to the Add Anchor Point tool or the Delete Anchor Point tool. This is useful when you want to start a new path on top of an existing path. In Photoshop, deselect Auto Add/Delete in the options bar.

      Any help would be appreciated.
