Original Redmine Issue: 16464

Redmine category:digitising


I hope this is the right place to post this. The Tracing tool found on the 'Advanced Digitizing' Toolbar is a really great tool. But sometimes when I'm using it a lot to create geometries that "hop" from one geometry to another unconnected geometry, it is a bit of a hindrance having to manually turn off/on the tool each time.

Perhaps to improve usability when the Tracing tool is turned on there is also the ability to temporarily disable the tool by pressing-holding the ctrl key (or a different key). This way the user can still draw the geometry, and when they release the ctrl key they can continue with tracing.

Hi, I tried to reproduce in master and didn't have to turn off tracing to change between disconnected geometries. I just do a left clic on the exit point from first geometry and another one on the entry point on the next geometry.
Would that work for you?

Already there and in a IMHO better configuration: Just press "T" enables and disables the tracing. http://docs.qgis.org/2.14/en/docs/user_manual/working_with_vector/editing_geometry_attributes.html#automatic-tracing

Cheers @Harrissou Satanna, I didn't know about the 'T' button, does exactly what I needed it to. I guess this issue can be closed now...any ideas how to do that? Thanks again for the help.
