Bug report #11411
Impossible to know geometry type and style when editing a vector with "single symbol" symbology in QGIS master

Add a layer
Toggle it into edition
The icon near the layer's name, the one that indicates the type of geometry (and now its symbology), becomes a pencil.
If you have many layers in the project and if you forget the style used by this layer ("single symbol"), it becomes a bit hard to find the layer's features in the map canvas.
When using "Single symbol" symbology, I think there should be a way to still easily identify the layer's geometry type and colour when editing.

Thanks for updating this report but I'd like to understand why it's no more a blocker bug, and not even a bug.
I've read that an issue is considered blocker when a feature that worked in a previous release no longer works. The new design of Map Legend breaks the ability to see which geometry type and style are used when editing a vector with "single symbol" symbology. So IMHO it is a bug and a blocker one. Isn't it?
A great part of my daily work is about digitizing. Such feature is really useful when you have many layers in edition at the same time and the tests I made with Master didn't ease the work. And I don't think I'll be all the time behind my colleagues to remind them they should have made a categorized symbology before toggling to edition their layers.
I think it'd be very helpful and great if a solution is found for this issue before release (even though i'm not sure it's possible)
