Add 'Move Point Symbols' Tool

Added by R. R. almost 8 years ago. Updated over 6 years ago.

Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Easy fix?:No Copied to github as #:22696


Please add a tool to move point symbol markers (e.g. SVG markers). It should work in the same way as the 'Move label' tool. So far there is no data defined option for X,Y coordinates in the 'Symbol selector' dialog but I suppose the existing 'Offset X,Y' fields will do the job. Please note that a 'Rotate Point Symbols' tool is already implemented in QGIS.

My aim is to create dynamic leader lines from the symbol marker offset to the point geometry using the new geometry generator marker:

make_line (
$x + regexp_substr("offset_xy", '([^,]*)'),
$y - regexp_substr("offset_xy", '([^,]*$)')
