I have a series of points in .shp format arranged in lines over an area, which I've used the 'regular points' tool to generate. In some of the lines, I want to decrease the spacing of the points so have added extras (selected points in image below)
I've added the extra points using the 'add point feature tool' and just clicked them approximately where they need to be.
Now I want to 'tidy up' the lines, and make all the new points on the same northing as the original ones, which they are slightly off because I added them by hand. I'm using a UTM CRS.
My question: Is there a way of selecting all the features in a row, and assigning a shared northing to all of them at once?
I realise at the moment I could either use the 'edit node' tool and change them one by one, or use the field calculator tool to make east and north columns, filled with the $x command, export this as a CSV or similar, edit in excel and re-import. I'm hoping for something more streamlined than this though!
Other software I've used has a very handy way of doing this, where selected points can be edited using the properties panel by simply clicking and changing the east or north for multiple points (image below)
