Have already run the buffer tool and do not want to make the polygons any larger with another buffer run.

Reshape features tool seems like it should work I am just not seeing how to operate it after many attempts and online searches.

Screenshot is here , showing how these large indents need to be eliminated, closed, or whatever the term is called?

Arcgis has an editor tool that does this but I need to use QGIS.

I figured it out it. Single left clicks when reshaping followed by a left click to end reshape, then single right click to complete reshape. Ignore the errors about duplicate nodes. Save edits often.
A little clunky interface but gets the job done. BTW, this is for a tree canopy survey using Orfeo output and raster2vector.
