Description

Qgis 3.4, a new profile with no plugins installed.

Start a new project.

Most of the Edit options are disabled except, weirdly, for "Add Rectangle From 3 Points". Every other Rectangle, Circle, etc creation option is disabled.

So I select it, and I can draw rectangles on the canvas with no layers in the legend, and they appear as red lines. Oddly, subsequent rectangles are connected from one corner of the previous to a corner of the other.

EDIT: see #20333#note-6
I can partially confirm the issue on Windows 7 64 bit:
I see "Add Rectangle From 3 Points" tool enabled (in both the Shape Digitizing Toolbar and the Edit menu), but I can only began the drawing of a rectangle without the possibility to end the draw.
/EDIT

I add that is also meaningless enabled (before opening a project or in project without layers) the "Deselect Features from All Layers" in the Attributes Toolbar and in the Edit/Select menu (this behaviour is however also present in 2.18.23).

@Andrea i don't have QGIS to test but i remember that finishing features with shape tools was not obvious to me when i first tested. You have to right-click again to close the geometry (see #17701), not trying with left click. Maybe it's what prevents you to finish the feature?

Thank you Harrissou, you are right and I agree with your fr #17701!

So now I can fully confirm the issue reported by Barry Rowlingson
