Continue line during collection

I would like to be able to choose which end of the line I collect from when I re-open a feature to continue collection.

We still do not have nested collection, so if I'm collecting a trail and I find something along it, I have to submit the trail feature before I can collect the new point.

When I open the trail feature to continue collection, I frequently have it open on the wrong end.

That is, if I started in the east and walked west, I want to continue walking west. Opening the line to continue collection will frequently reverse it, so my very first vertex is treated as my most recent one. 

(Imagery made in Pro as a markup)






To try to fix it, I've ended up moving the vertex I actually want to collect from way off in the distance, then adding vertices along the way. This is not ideal.



I would like a "continue line" option so that I don't have this happen anymore. Alternatively, a "Reverse Direction" would work too.


I agree- we need a 'reverse direction' option.  extending a line from the startpoint is a nightmare
