Step 1: Add Layer

  • Add a layer by selecting the layer menu in QGIS

Step 2: Start Editing

  • First of all we need to turn on the “Edit” function in QGIS by pressing the pencil icon in the menu.
  • The sample below shows regions in Germany. After you turn on the edit function all features will turn red.
