I am using QGIS version 1.8.0. Sometimes when I cut or merge polygons I get unwanted lines left in them. On zooming in to them they do not appear to be slivers. Is there a way of getting rid of these line, some kind or tidy feature or plugin? Thanks

Kurt, I'm new to the website so can you advise me the best way to give you a screenshot or a file? –  Mike Jul 15 '13 at 11:44
any free image upload-service will do it, eg. postimage.org or use flickr.com or what ever you prefer. the following example is from postimage.org: postimg.org/image/subcsiuj5. later on, when you have earned some reputation-points on gis.stackexchange.com, you can upload directly. maybe this link is also useful: makeuseof.com/tag/paste-edit-screenshots-online-instant-sharing –  Kurt Jul 15 '13 at 13:19
