1)Select a feature.
2)Start editing an existing line from a shapefile (add some vertices, move some quiet a bit).
3)Sometimes it would be great to have a "zoom to feature" to zoom to the current feature extent of the feature I'm working with, or the last one I worked with. Since there is none, I "zoom to selection" (see 1).
4)The map zooms to the old, original extent of the selection/feature. If zoom to the selection after saving the edits, it zooms to the new exent.

Sometimes, I'd like to zoom to a whole feature before saving, just to check if everything is okay. Therefore it would be helpful to have a "zoom to feature" or the zoom to selection that zooms to the edited but not yet saved feature.

It would be nice to have it implemented. Pushing to 1.2.

Hello, bug triage...

on QGIS 2.13, when you reproduce the steps described in the request, zooming on the selection zooms to the edited feature. Even if the new geoemtry is not saved, the zoom on the selection will zoom on the whole new geometry and not the old one.

I am closing this feature request...
