Description

This is the just a wild idea but putting it here so I don't forget, plus I think it would be pretty cool.

The idea is to create a new tabbed version of the style manager and allow the user to drag a symbol on to a feature and it would style that feature/s with that symbol.

General code model:
  • Drop symbol
  • Grab active layer
  • Find feature under drop point
  • Reverse lookup of feature symbol in renderer
  • Replace symbol with dropped one
Issues:
  1. How to handle dropping over stacked features?
  2. Rule based renderer with multimatched rules?

The above issue could be solved with a pop out list of options.
