Description

Edit > Move Feature
- Moving features in QGIS should allow snap
- So you can move features from one precise point to another precise point.
In QGIS 3.02as, well as older versions, "Move feature" does not allow precise editing, it's merely drag and drop at an undefined location.

There is no work-around available, neither plugins that provide precise moving of features.

History

#1 Updated by Harrissou Santanna about 2 years ago

In 3.0, The tooltip of the move feature button states that if you need snapping, you should rather use the vertex tool: select all the vertices of the feature and you'll move the whole feature by click-click.

This works fine here, with snapping using the move tool. What am I missing?

I fail to make it work here. The snapping settings seem ignored: with the same settings, the vertex tool shows snapping marker icons but with the move tool there's nothing that helps me think that some accurate displacement is being done.
