Feature request #15119
on screen snapping indicator

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.

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.
