Digitizing Options

Digitizing can be in two modes:

In both modes, for options that require an enclosed polygon, the program will automatically close the area.

Digitizing mode is set on Printer/Hardware tab of options form. You can also change mode by right clicking on the map while digitizing.

The "better" selection mode depends on the project, and personal preferences (hand-eye coordination varies among people).  Digitization will probably be best with a mouse, and not the trackpad on a laptop.

These same modes apply in Google Earth and other programs.
