Description

It'd be really nice if there was some kind of visual indicator telling the user what is being snapped.

For example, the cursor could change to show if it's a vertex/node, segment or intersection and a small text popup showing what layer it's snapping to as well.

Nice input!

My ideas are:

  • highlight the whole geometry with a soft (semi transparent) color.
  • highlight the snapped segment or vertex with a harder color.
  • show a text (tooltip style) next to the snapped point * Layer * Feature title

For extra points, let the user page through the possible snapping results with a key.

I think a great improvement would be also to see where the first click was! Like a large circle and then, maybe an auto-closing/complete feature so the user doesn't have to sniper the first vertex they clicked on.

I usually have to zoom right in, super close to finish the edit and click on the first vertex or intersection I clicked on.
