Create a point layer
Digitise some points
Save changes
Create a line layer
click to start digitizing - attributes dialog immediately pops up - this is because qgis is still in point digitizing mode.

Mode should be changed according to current layer. In addition, I think it would be better if we only showed one digitizing icon at a given time, swapping out the icon from point/ line/ poly / not available modes. It will take up less space on toolbar and elimiate possibiliy of using wrong tool.

Editing is now stopped if the current maplayer changes. We propably also need to deactivate the current editing tool in qgisapp.

#2 Updated by Marco Hugentobler almost 18 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

I added a test (in qgsmaptoolcapture) if the tool matches the vector type of the current layer and removed the 'stop editing' in case of current layer changes. This seems to be the simpelst solution to prevent using a wrong capture tool.
