Undocumented New Feature In X7?

I just discovered that you can cut a hole in a selected 2D polyline fill using the "Create Hole" tool on the Edit Toolbar. I THINK this is a new feature, because I recollect only being able to do this with 3D objects previously. Even better is that you can take the 2D fill with a hole and convert it to a polyline solid, say, and the hole is already there. The fill appears to calculate area correctly taking into account the removed area, too. I like this a lot, and would be very sad to learn that I missed it in X6, but better late than never!

Well, even the X7 documentation only talks about "polyline-based objects" having holes, with no reference to 2D or 3D. It never occurred to me that a simple fill was a "polyline-based object," I guess, thinking that this phrase referred to a polyline solid. slab, countertop, or even a landing. Maybe this will help someone else who is a victim of unclear documentation.
