Description

1. add a vector layer

2. toggle edit on

3. select some editing tool

4. toggle edit off

The cursor remains for the last selected edit tool, although editing is disabled - confusing. If the last tool selected before quitting the edit mode is an edit tool, the cursor should be reset to what it was before entering the edit mode; propably by activating back the tool that was in use before toggling edit on.

As it currently is, a novice user happens to be not sure if he really quit the edit mode, since his cursor is the same as it was when he was editing (folks who I teach QGIS have this problem). BTW - I suggest to change cursor's color too for edit tools, eg. to red, to make the distinction even clearer.

QGIS 0.9.2 SVN r8171, QT 4.3.2.

History

#1 Updated by Maciej Sieczka - over 12 years ago

This bug has further consequences:

1. toggle edit on for a line or polygon layer

2. start digitizing a segment, don't finish it

3. toggle edit off

You end up with a mixture of digitizing mode turned off and on, with all it's implications including confusion and possible data loss.

Still present in .

Still valid as of b5286872 (SVN r8353).

Replying to [comment:4 jef]:

fixed in

Not completely. Still:

1. start qgis

2. don't select any tool

3. add a shapefile (eg. polygon)

4. select "add polygon" tool

5. toggle editing off

The cursor remains like it was in the editing mode.
