Hi Harrisou,

I'm with you, seeing the 'Improved geometry editing' section in Anita's
blog [0], I thought to test this too.

But (with me on Linux) I fail to get things done too. It looks like I
have to click on nodes before I can move them? While in webmaps (to
which Anita compares the editing), you just hover over them, and if you
see the cross or resized node, you can just drag them (without clicking
it first).
With me (on Linux) build of yesterday, this does not work, I get a blue
rectangle/rubberband all the time, but fail to move points untill I
click on them?

Maybe somebody can share a little screencapture/movie about it?
