You don't need to Shift-Click, a simple click in the right spot does
the trick. Then, watch the cursor. If you managed to close the shape,
the cursor will not show a + sign if inside the shape and the
forbidden sign when outside the shape.

Yes, I admit this could be improves. Patches to improve iscissors
