The current node displacement tool works with a drag & drop behaviour.

This issue propose to transform this behaviour into a freehand mode : click to get the node, move the mouse and click to "drop" it.

Advantages would be the following:
  • improved snapping capabilities
  • use of the keyboard while editing
  • integration with advanced digitzing (CAD)
  • possibility of canceling current operation with right click
  • avoid unwanted move (sometimes a click on the map led to an unwanted node move)
