I'm doing a QGIS course at the moment using QGIS 3.10 on a Windows 10 Pro 64bit system at the moment.

Settings are default, except for the "filter invalid geometries" option is set to "ignore".

With a shape selected and editing+vertex tool active, I can select a single vertex (shift+click) and edit or delete it. I can also select all vertices on a line by pressing shift+r and then selecting the first and last vertex.

I cannot, however, select multiple vertices by dragging a box. I have tried for 2 hours now, and I just don't get why it doesn't work. Has anyone else seen this problem with QGIS 3.10, and has anyone solved it?

  • I have the exact same issue as OP describes. I have the layer selected, in edit mode, using the vertex tool, and when I click and drag a box over one or multiple vertices, nothing happens. It's as if I never clicked and dragged the box in the first place. I really hope there is a solution for this. I'm just adding this to let you know that there are more people who experience the same problem. – Martin Nilsson Apr 1 '20 at 11:38
  • Did installing the newer stable version do the trick for you? – Moritz Apr 1 '20 at 16:11

I don't see any issue with selecting multiple vertices by dragging a box to do selection. It works as expected:

I used the Delete button to delete the selected vertices.

Try after using shift+r or shift+click to click any place outside, at the white background, to remove the selection. Also press the Esc button on your keyboard to remove any effects of the shift+r or shift+click. It may solve the problem.

  • Hello Ahmadhanb, this is how I would expect it to work. I reinstalled QGIS once more (I did that once before to no avail). This time, I replaces QGIS 3.10.3-3 with version 3.10.4-1. Vertex tool now works as shown in your video. Thanks for your feedback, anyway. – Moritz Mar 26 '20 at 10:00
  • @Moritz Glad the problem is solved. :) – ahmadhanb Mar 26 '20 at 11:36
