It does appear to be closed by default, but I can't actually get the last point of the last line to snap-connect to the first point of starting line… maybe that is not doable? But, mute point since when you switch out the polygon is closed even if you have a small "x over" at the return point…
You can do this by script, just use something like the following script in the card or stack;
— use the altKey to ensure this is a chosen behaviour
— leave the altKey condition out if this is to be the default behaviour
if the altKey is down and the style of the last graphic = "polygon" then
get the points of the last graphic
put line 1 of it into line -1 of it
set the points of the last graphic to it
set the editMode of the last graphic to "polygon" -- Thank you Mark!
This will make sure the first point and last point are equal and the graphic points are editable.
set the editMode of the last graphic to “none” -- turn off the Reshape Polygon mode and remove the edit handles
