Have made the move to QGIS 3 but am having trouble locating the AutoTrace/Trace tool.

I have enabled advanced digitizing tools where the magnet button sat in QGIS 2.18 but it is not there in QGIS 3. I also can't find any AutoTrace plugins in the QGIS 3 plugin manager.


The tracing tool has moved to the Snapping toolbar:

    Wow,... how can we call up the Snapping toolbar? (Sorry to butt in...) – Kazuhito Mar 29 '18 at 9:21

    @Kazuhito - Don't apologise :). Right-click somewhere on the toolbar to get the available panel/toolbar options and it should be listed. Funnily enough, it is not listed in View > Toolbars. Perhaps this is a bug...? – Joseph Mar 29 '18 at 9:24

    Great, right-click on the toolbar did the trick. Thanks! (Yes, I had been looking atView menu only.) – Kazuhito Mar 29 '18 at 10:41
  • @Ben - Most welcome! Glad it helped :) – Joseph Apr 3 '18 at 9:31
