Description for Release

8.5.0b1

8.0.0b15

The 2D Reshape tool can cause selection handles to show a reversed state. Draw a rectangle and an extrude. Select them both and choose the 2D Reshape tool. Draw the marquee around at least one of the selection handles of each object. Drag the marquee to perform the reshape. Draw another marquee. From this point on one or more of the extrude's selection handles will be reversed (off for selected, on for not selected).
