Giovanni,

please check if the prolong line tool in digitizing tools plugin (experimental) solves this issue.

Can we reopen this. I think should be a core feature not something we have to get in a plugin.

Sure. Problem is that there are so many digitizing plugins that I would personally like to see as core tools :)

We had a discussion on the list last fall [1] that there is a need for more (and advanced) editing tools. Currently they are under development as a user plugin but I do not mind them being a core plugin as soon we have finished all we have in mind and the whole thing is a bit polished :).
Shouldn't we have a seperate ticket for this make DigitizingTools a core plugin then?

I would say create a ticket called something like "Advanced editing tools" and create a new ticket for each edit tool that we should have as core. You can assign these tickets as children of the "Advanced editing tools" ticket so they are all grouped together.

We should just aim to make them core features, ignore the core plugin idea.

That will need C++ skills, won't it? I am afraid I am glad to get my things done in Python :)

It will but don't worry about that for now :) Lets just get some tickets made and we can come back to it in time. If you have a working implementation in Python converting it to C++ isn't too hard.

I get a lot of feedback from training courses and the most asked are:

fill spaces
fill holes, done thanks to Bernhard
remove overlapped areas
open hole/ring + automatic fill with a new polygon (with pop up for attributes)
continue line edit, done thanks to Bernhard
avoid intersection when copying/pasting polygons

Updated by Bernhard Ströbl over 3 years ago

fill spaces will be finished today and called fill gaps; wait for the next version of the plugin :-)
open hole/ring + automatic fill with a new polygon (with pop up for attributes): this is a combination of two tools, i.e. the standard add ring and my fill ring, I doubt it is necessary to make an extra one for that.
avoid intersection when copying/pasting polygons: this is a must for me, too, but should be realized in core functionality as both avoid overlaps and copy/paste are core

oh great!

of course

ok
