I imported a grid point layer in Qgis 3.2 during my workflow, as seen in the picture below.
I now need to edit another point layer. As I don't need the first layer, I had it hidden, but I need to keep it in the project for possible future use.
Using the vertex tool editor, I want to move a point to specific coordinates. However, when I want to select the point in the second layer, all the points from the first layer are selectable, even if the layer is not editable. As the points are rather tight, it becomes hard to select the right point from the layer.
According to the research I made, this behaviour is not to be expected, as discussed in this link.
- Is it a bug, or is there a setting that I am missing? I need to snap the vertex editor only to the active layer, any other behaviour feels really confusing.
- Once the vertex is selected, is there another setting to enable or disable snapping to the hidden layers? In my mind, if a layer is hidden, it is meant to be forgotten until displayed again, so I would like to set Qgis according to that behaviour.
