Feature request #16904

Offset option for digitizing with the trace-tool

Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:invalid
Easy fix?:No Copied to github as #:24803



our company and our customers use QGIS a lot for digitizing geometries (especially polygons and lines). The trace digitize tool is very helpful. But we would like to set an offset to the feature to wich the trace is performed. We made a video of how this function works in ArcGIS.


How much work (cost) would it be to add this feature?
Is anybody else interested in this feature?
We would like to see this feature in QGIS 3.0. Is this realistic?
We are willing to start a crowdfunding campaign to implement this feature.

Thanks Alex

Hi Alexander,

We did the original autotrace work and had similar requests in the past. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in funding the feature.
