ContourMerge
provides a tool to merge the contours of adjacent areas.

The contourmerge plugin provides a tool to merge the contours of adjacent areas.

Attention

This tool - patchworking of areas - makes only sense, if the areas are directly dependent on each other.

This does not apply to water bodies like lakes and rivers (natural=water respectively waterway=riverbed) and nearby landuse (landuse=*) !

Example
Although forests can seemingly agree with the shore at a certain water level,
when the water level drops, this will create a land area between forest and river that is not covered through forest
when the water level rises, the trees would suddenly stand in the water ...
A forest adjacent to a lake ...
... drag the forests contour line ...
... over the lakes shoreline ...
... and drop it to merge the contours

This is mainly useful for mappers who trace areas like lakes, forests, riverbeds, residential areas, or other landuse areas from aerial imagery, i.e. from Bing.
