Feature request #11179
Allow to define a tolerance for point selection

When using the single-click selection tool to select a point of a points layer, the symbol representing the point must be clicked at the very center (1x1 rectangle around). When using big symbols to represent points that becomes not very easy.
A customizable tolerance could be used instead.

What about big symbols for a point ? You may want to select it by clicking on the symbol, not on their centres. The best would be to be able to click anywhere on the symbol, rather than modifying the tolerance each time. But since the selection happens at the data level and not at the symbology level, it is not very easy to implement.

Currently, selection uses a hardcoded 10*10 pixel square to select lines and points. It would be quite easy to change this to use the identify radius, which can be changed in Options-> Map tools.
However, to change it based on symbology seems much more complex.
