You're pretty much explaining the merge tool...select the points you want then merge with the distance option :)

See video...I tried it with all 8 points, so you might want to test it with just 2 and see if it works differently.

Why does this bother you?

Snap Drag and could have an option to merge when snapping.
Bridge could have an option to actually weld the loops instead of bridge them.
An interactive Merge tool would fit just fine there too.

Cheers

yes, not very fast... :/ Maya method seems faster, but not ultimate...

You did not present any Maya method :)

Maya is pretty much snapping ;]


Snap Drag and could have an option to merge when snapping...so pretty much that... :]

but the method i suggested with "merge 2 nearest points only" should be 0.5 seconds faster
