I am new to QGIS (2.6.1) and am having trouble adding a new linear feature to an existing layer.

I have set tolerances and digitized the vertices of the line and it terminates with a large green X at the terminal node. But any attempt to select the feature results in 0 features found. And if I turn off the layer, this solitary line remains visible. What layer is the line associated with? What am I missing?

1 Answer 1


The line is associated with the layer you have switched to Edit mode before digitizing.

Once you have saved and left the edit mode, the feature should be selectable if you have selected the layer in the table of content.
