I'm hoping someone here can tell me what I'm doing wrong... Whenever I use the Advanced Digitizing tools in QGIS, I crash after about 5 clicks. I'm even doing it without OTF transformations on.

Any idea what's going on or if this is a known bug?

Ok, there is definitely a bug, but I found a temporary fix for it...

While I was editing, I had snapping turned on. I needed this in order to snap to boundaries, measure a setback, and then start drawing my feature. I turned snapping off after my measurement line was completed, and... QGIS didn't crash! So, if anyone else runs into this issue, this worked for me

    nice - did you submit to the QGIS bug trackers? May 6, 2015 at 20:32
  • Judging from discussion on the QGIS mailing list, the cause of the crash is very likely a malfunctioning plugin rather than snapping itself.

  • Interesting. I'll try disabling some plugins and trying it again, but the snapping definitely seems to be an issue
