I implemented the polygon editing tool years ago and since then it hasn't received much love. However, there are several improvements that could be implemented to make it more useful:

  • Allow rotating of selected nodes
  • Allow scaling of selected nodes
  • Allow converting between polyline and polygon (open vs. closed)
  • Allow extending a polyline or polygon with more nodes (#157)
  • Add a faster way to split segments, by dragging from them or double-clicking them (splitting at interacted location).

For other possible improvements, see also #117, #145, #404, #762, #882 and #1555.

See also https://vectr.com/ (installable as snap on Linux) for common actions.

@bjorn can we discuss more about this tool here? I was going through all the issues that you've mentioned, and it seemed to me that a lot of changes are to be made. That's why I was considering revamping this tool.

@ketanhwr Sure. So far it seemed to me that these issues would all mean to extend the tool, but some things may raise questions. Please go into more detail about the things you consider needing a lot of changes.

  • Allow rotating of selected nodes
  • Allow scaling of selected nodes

What does these two mean exactly?

I can think of those to, for example, rotate or scale a subset of the vertices of a polygon. I guess this is mostly useful for larger / complex polygons.

Just see for example how when you select multiple objects, you can rotate and scale them as a group. The same functionality should be available for polygon nodes.
