You might particularly enjoy the keyboard shortcuts:

The “a” shortcut does some auto-magic where if you have 3 or more points, it will automatically place the other point at the place where it thinks works best.

Quick place “q” and save point “e” then Auto place “a” twice and save point “e”.                      Click the image for bigger
