When moving features in edit mode, normally it shows features content (new position of features) in every displacement of mouse cursor as shown in the image.

enter image description here

In case of small number of features, no problem. But while moving thousands of features, QGIS freezes for a long time before it shows features content. Sometimes I have 10.000-50.000 features (~1.000.000 features in total) that I have to move at the same time.

I need to move features manually. I don't move all features at once, but partially. Using tools slows me down.

How can I disable showing content while moving features?

    Can you use the Vector Geometry -> Translate tool to move the features instead of dragging them? – spatialthoughts Jul 27 at 3:52

  • I think you can't, maybe using python you can – Fran Raga Jul 27 at 9:54
  • I agree with @FranRaga, it doesn't look like you can. I tried turning off Rendering and disabling the current layer while using the Move tool, and in both cases the preview still shows. You're definitely trying to use a manual tool for something that most people would try to automate. It's really not designed to be used the way you're using it. If you would consider a different solution we might be able to help, but I don't think the solution you asked for exists. – csk Jul 29 at 16:55

For qgis2.x there is the "move"-Plugin which lets you move selected features without a preview of the moved features. You just click the origin-point and the destination point and the plugin moves all selected features.
