Is there a way to cut polygons in QGIS using freehand tool? Unfortunately Freehand Editing tool in QGIS 2.x does not provide such functionality. There is a tool for cutting polygons with standard editing mode enter image description here. But I need to cut polygons with freehand mode.Is it possible?

    what do you mean by "freehand mode" - the polygon cut tool allows you to use an arbitrary line and to add and subtract nodes to it later – Ian Turton Sep 11 at 10:59
  • I mean not to click every time mouse button for polygon verices but draw polygon with freehand digitizing like it ia available in Freehand Editing tool – Sergey Myshliakov Sep 11 at 12:46
  • One option may be to digitise your split lines into a scratch layer using the freehand editing tool and then use that as an input for the Split With Lines processing tool. – TeddyTedTed Sep 11 at 13:27
  • I think Sergey is referring to stream digitizing ? – Mapperz Sep 11 at 14:59
  • Yes, exactly, i'd like to have tool providing stream digitizing when cutting polygons – Sergey Myshliakov Sep 11 at 15:01
