comment How can I create/draw “freehand” polygon features in QGIS 2.2?
What OS are you running? How did you install QGIS 2.2? I just tried on my Windows7 system, with QGIS2.2 installed via OSGEO4W and it worked fine. Are you sure you have a polygon or line layer, and that it's editable?

comment How to avoid snapping errors in QGis?
I rarely use the snapping settings in meters--I find that pixels makes more sense. If you measure your small differences, are they less than 1.5 meters, or greater?

comment How to determine if an object is a circle
Thanks; you're right, and that makes sense! I guess the difference was how many digits of pi used - I only used a couple digits!

comment Is there a consumer-level handheld GPS that can use standard GIS data as its background layer?
Agreed; if you can figure out the battery concern, that tethering a 'real' GPS to a smartphone is likely the best option.

comment Show the paths but not roadsides and driveways in the line layer
Are there only paths in the nature areas? If so, you could clip the line layer with the polygon woodland area layer.
