I've installed the QGIS 'Freehand' plugin and I have a query regarding it.

When drawing a polygon qgis automatically closes the polygon when the pen leaves the graphic tablet. Is there any way to turn this feature off? Or at least be able pause it? (when drawing large intricate polygons your hand can often become tired at a chance for a breather would be welcomed!)

Also, is there anyway to delete nodes as you go along in case you make a mistake?
