Description

I just noticed a serious regression in QGIS with regards to digitizing features. When selecting all nodes of a part in a multi-part polygon, deleting those nodes (via the DEL keyboard shortcut) does nothing, i.e. fails to delete that part as it used to do in QGIS.

Steps to reproduce:
  1. Create a multipolygon scratch layer in an empty QGIS project
  2. Add a multipolygon with two parts, make sure the second part is small and distant enough from first part to be able to select all its nodes via left mouse click drag
  3. Save the scratch layer
  4. While still in edit mode, select all the nodes of one of the parts of the above created multipolygon
  5. Hit the DEL keyboard key
  6. Notice the absence of deletion of that part

Not a regression, so lowering the priority

  • Subject changed from regression: selecting all nodes of a part from a multi-part polygon does not delete that part to selecting all nodes of a part from a multi-part polygon does not delete that part

Oups, Nyall's right; a while ago, Jürgen fixed / implemented deletion of ring by selection all of its nodes. I got my rings and my parts mixed up ;)
