It would be great to have a third option for shape falloff type that centers the falloff on the shape edge. I made a button image, but another way would be to allow both Falloff Type buttons to be toggled at the same time. Less UI that way, but it wouldn't communicate as well to the user either.

I was hoping so! I often find myself in a situation where I draw the shape of a land mass based on where I want the coastline to be, but if I want any terrain to go below sea level I end up with no height information from my shape because I use inner falloff for the general slope of the landmass. I end up having to adjust the shape after I find my slope/falloff angle. If I want to change the slope, I have to adjust the shape vertices again. What would be really awesome would be a slider that shifts the falloff between inner and outer, but I could do that manually if I have a centered option, either would be great. 8)
