I want to shorten a feature (a polyline representing a road) in QGIS 2.4
In QGIS 2.0 there was "Split Features" tool in the "Advanced Digitizing" toolbar.
Here the icon:
I'm not able to do this again. Thanks.
Make sure you have the feature selected that you want to split
From the Advanced Digitizing toolbar, select Split Features
Draw a line across the feature you want split
Right-click to finish the sketch
Your feature is not split at the intersection of the sketch and the original line.
EDIT: In QGIS v2.4+ it seems the "Split Features" function is found under the Edit menu if you have not enabled it in the toolbar (in the toolbar as "Advanced Digitizing").
