Bug report #18094
node tool batch vertex selection mode seems broken

I tested again the batch selection mode of vertices described here [[https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/5479]] and I can't see any effect of the SHIT+R modifier.
I tested on d182138.
Is there any possibility to have unit tests for that?
Moreover, there is no user feeddback that this mode exists and is activated and it seems annoying.

Have you tried SHIFT + R?
Ooooh SH....t , Never ever raise an issue late in a train :) . BTW a "SHIT" key on a keyboard wouldn't be a so bad idea.
I retested again with the latest build and it works finally. I think there is some usability issue because in normal mode, clicking on a vertex "grabs" the vertex immediatly, when on batch mode, it is just selecting the node as before.
Let's see how it turns for users after the release, but my guess is that we'll have to make it more clear in the GUI, because most users won't find it.
I see two options,
- the current shiFt + R (lol again) + a status bar button / indicator
- or a dropdown selector for node tool, with two different node tools.
Thanks for testing, I owe you all a beer :)
