I guess this is a case of wording and wrong expectations.
The polyline tool “Delete Segments between two nodes” removes nodes, but not segments as the title and the icon suggests.
I propose to rename it to “Delete Nodes between two nodes”.
A tool which actually removes line segments from a polyline, leaving gaps, could indeed be useful to some users.
I think of a straight polyline with several segments. Then I remove some segments. I end up with a polyline with “holes” in it. Now I could stretch that polyline and all the remaining segments and holes stretch proportionally. Could be handy some times.
