We believe good spatial information leads to superior planning, diminished project risks, improved feasibility assessments and efficient resource utilisation.

Hi Gavin,
I did see the one using "another layer", but that is problematic as when one is digitising (say) a town road network you would want to honour the straightness of the roads and then intersect them afterwards.

If you're doing it while digitising I would rather set up snapping perfectly then node intersections while digitising. As simple as stopping a line and starting a new one instead of just clicking a vertex at an intersection. 

Hence "popping out" to other facilities just messes up your work-flow.

Will look at the scripting options  - for now this is just a training exercise in teaching digitising principals.

Thanks & keep well,
