QGIS 3 vertex tool in WGS84

by Geo_LF   Last Updated July 12, 2019 16:22 PM

I have a shapefile in WGS84 that I want to edit some of the polygons (move nodes, add nodes) but when the CRS of the qgis project is set to WGS84 and I try to use the vertex tool the cursor just spins and the program crashes even. This data has been re-projected from EPSG:27700 so I tried on the fly projection to 27700 I can edit the layer as I wish to.

Does the node tool work only in projected system? Not geographic?
