Bug report #17963

node editing - inconsistent behavior

Added by Jamie Robertson about 6 years ago. Updated about 5 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.18.2 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:no timely feedback
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:25859


I have noticed an issue when I'm editing nodes on a polyline with the node tool. Sometimes when I move a node the adjacent node will disappear, sometimes the newly created node will take the place of the adjacent node, and sometimes it will move as expected while leaving the adjacent node alone. This seems like a snapping issue, but it happens with snapping turned on or off for the layer. The video linked below will show the expected behavior when moving a node, followed by the behavior when the adjacent node disappears.


MacOS 10.11
Qgis 2.18.2

Thank you.
