#958 closed bug (fixed)

wrong cursor after quiting edit mode

Reported by: sieczka Owned by: jef
Priority: major: does not work as expected Milestone:
Component: Digitising Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:
Must Fix for Release: Yes Platform: All
Platform Version: Awaiting user input: no


  1. add a vector layer
  1. toggle edit on
  1. select some editing tool
  1. 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.

This bug has further consequences:

  1. toggle edit on for a line or polygon layer
  1. start digitizing a segment, don't finish it
  1. 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 r8189.

Replying to jef:

fixed in r8656

Not completely. Still:

  1. start qgis
  1. don't select any tool
  1. add a shapefile (eg. polygon)
  1. select "add polygon" tool
  1. toggle editing off

The cursor remains like it was in the editing mode.
