Description

Please add the ability to input X and Y values to the Move tool in the Digitizing toolbar. It could work like this:
- mouse left button: free move of the feature
- mouse right button: opens a dialogue box to input the X and Y values.
This way there's more control over the Move tool and its actions.
Best regards,
Pedro

try also the numeric vertex editor

#2 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 6 years ago

it is obviously a plugin... :)

Yes, it's a plugin. But what I've meant was move an entirely feature (point, line or polygon) and not a single vertex ;)

I have found the numeric vertex editor to be buggy and do strange things at time. I think this would be a good feature to have in the main app.

Being able to edit the vertex points also would be good.

true, mine was just a suggestion for a temporary workaround for points/nodes

Hello, bug triage...

in QGIS 2.13 (and previous versions), you have the Advanced Digitizing Panel. When you activate it and create a new geometry, you are able to manually input X and Y (with blocking options). You are free to use it or not. You can also manually input a distance from the last point or an angle with the last segment.

I am closing this old feature request.

Hello,
Yes I'm aware of the Advanced Digitizing Panel and it works great when creating new features. What I've meant with this request was to add the ability to easily and manually control the amount in XX and YY to move an existing feature. So please reopen the ticket.
