Description

In trunk the "Snap Tolerance" dialogue (which you get if you don't click somewhere valid when using digitizing tools like the node tool, "delete part" and "delete ring") says this:

Could not snap segment.
Have you set the tolerance in Settings > Project Properties > General?

I think it should say:

Could not snap segment.
Have you set the tolerance in Settings > Snapping Options

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 8 years ago

  • Target version set to Version 1.7.4

#2 Updated by Leyan Ouyang over 7 years ago

  • Affected QGIS version set to master
  • Crashes QGIS or corrupts data set to No

It is a simple change that could improve usability as people are currently lead to a non-existing setting. The actual setting controlling this behavior is in "Settings > Options > Digitizing > Search radius for vertex edits".

Actually, I'm guessing it should say this:

Could not snap to segment. Have you set the tolerance in Settings > Snapping Options ?

#4 Updated by Arunmozhi P over 7 years ago

Patch added to fix this with text

Could not snap to segment. Have you set the tolerance in Settings > Snapping Options ?

#5 Updated by Arunmozhi P over 7 years ago

Sorry. There was a repetition of text in the previous patch. New patch attached.

#6 Updated by Leyan Ouyang over 7 years ago

Please read my earlier comment, the setting controlling the distance to snap to point when clicking is not in "Settings > Snapping Options", it is "Settings > Options > Digitizing > Search radius for vertex edits".

Forgive me. I thought that both the snap settings meant the same. I have updated with new patch.

Does this dialog even show up anymore. I can't get it to show up even when not clicking near a segment.

#12 Updated by Alister Hood over 7 years ago

To use the node tool you (1) click on the object (or its border if it is a polygon), then (2) click on nodes or edges/line segments to drag them around.
Currently you get this dialog only if you miss the object in step (1). To be consistent either it should be shown whether you miss the object in (1) or (2), or it shouldn't be shown in both cases.
I guess some people would even want an option to choose whether or not it is shown...

#13 Updated by Alister Hood over 7 years ago

Sorry, let me rewrite that:

Yes, it does show up still.

To use the node tool you (1) click on the object (or its border if it is a polygon), then (2) click on nodes or edges/line segments to drag them around.

Currently you get this dialog only if you miss the object in step (1). Maybe you were trying in step (2). Or perhaps you selected the option not to show it again.

To be consistent either it should be shown whether you miss the object in (1) or (2), or if you've selected the option not to show it again, then it shouldn't be shown in either case.
