I've installed the QGIS Freehand plugin.

When drawing a polygon, QGIS automatically closes the polygon when the pen leaves the graphic tablet :

  • Is there any way to turn this feature off, or at least be able pause it? When drawing large intricate polygons your hand can often become tired at a chance for a breather would be welcomed!

  • Is there anyway to delete nodes as you go along in case you make a mistake?


It is better to use Add Feature tool enter image description here instead of Freehand Editing Plugin when drawing a polygon. The Add Feature tool in QGIS main tools can let you draw a polygon without being closed automatically unless you did a right-click on the mouse to finish the sketch.

If you want to delete a node you can click on Node tool enter image description here which allows you to select any node and then delete.
