I installed the Rectangles, ovals digitizing tools-plugin, found it on the toolbar, but it's inactive. I made a layer to which I want to add rectangles, it's visible and editable... The plugin bar is grey and inactive.

What to do?

    Be wary... That plugin has known issues and will cause your QGIS to get slower and slower over time. – ndawson Jan 13 '16 at 6:27
  • Thnx. Any alternatives (preferably with the possibility to set dimensions of the polygons)? – Rob Jan 13 '16 at 7:18

The Rectangles Ovals Digitizing plugin only works for polygon layers, not for point or line layers.

    Is there a way to change or set dimensions to rectangles? – Rob Jan 12 '16 at 13:43

    @Rob - Not that I'm aware of, I don't see an option to change the dimensions. I have only used this tool a handul of times so perhaps another who is more experienced in it could advise. – Joseph Jan 12 '16 at 13:47
