I want to delete points that is not part of a polygon. I can add points using Capture Point, but I can't delete them. The following solution does not work for points:

  1. Select your layer
  2. Enabled Editing
  3. Choose the Node Tool
  4. Click a point on your polygon
  5. Use Command-click & drag to select multiple points with the marquee tool. (might be shift-click on Windows)
  6. Use Delete key to delete the selected points (Fn+Delete on MacBook Pro)

1 Answer 1


Step 4 and 6 is wrong.

You will need to use the normal select tool (select point, rectangle, etc), and the delete feature button.

Note: 4 and 6 would normally work except for the bug that is currently in the node tool. Will be fixed in 1.8 release
