Description

Any layer

Start editing, select editing nodes tool,click on object - nodes show up

Switch to zoom - nodes disappear

So need to zoom, select tool, click on object, zoom ....etc. Rather inconvinient!

Note that if object is selected, nodes don't dissappear, so may be we need to select object when clicked with node editing tool, so navigating will note loose node view.

History

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 7 years ago

Confirmed also under linux, but in my case (both linux and windows) the node tool markers disappear when selecting the zoom tool, even if the feature is selected. Zooming with the mouse wheel seems to have no side effects.

#2 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 7 years ago

More interesting notes on this issue:

*) "pan map" tool -> node tool markers disappear

*) "zoom in"/"zoom out" tools -> node tool markers disappear

*) "zoom full"/"zoom to layer" -> node tool markers stay put

*) selecting another layer in the legend -> node tool markers disappear

*) "zoom to selection" -> node tool markers stay put

*) "select features" tool -> node tool markers disappear

and finally

*) "zoom last"/"zoom next" tools -> node tool markers stay put but they are NOT redesigned so they show int he wrong place with the wrong scale.

I think the only problem here is that the node tool doesn't keep the feature
currently beeing edited on deactivation.

It's ok that the markers disappear, when another tool is activated or the layer
is changed, but they should reappear when the node tool is activated again.

"Zoom in", "Zoom out", "Pan Map" and "Select features" are activated (change
what happens when you click on the canvas) and therefore deactivate the node
tool. In that case the node tool markers should disappear.

"Zoom full", "Zoom to layer", "Zoom to selection", "Zoom last" and "Zoom next"
just change the window and leave the activated node tool untouched and hence
don't make the markers disappear.

I can't reproduce that the node tool markers don't disappear on selected items
(which would be a bug). QGIS is probably set to "show vertex markers only for
selected features" in Options/Digitizing and therefore just the vertex markers
don't disappear (which isn't a bug).

Yes, this would be nice if it remember the last feature.

I'm turning it into feature request.

Selection doesn't help storing nodes active anymore.

Node tool has been totally redesigned. Now vertices are shown with markers only on mouse hover. The context is totally different then.
Can you check you still have some issues, I couldn't reproduce anymore.
