• You can also make point "active element" to make dots untstacked and merged in 1 true dot. (Sometimes it can be turned off) – user18072 Sep 12 '15 at 23:53

AutoMerge Editing might be what you are looking for. It can be toggled on and off by clicking the entry.

EDIT: I've added the image posted as a comment by username: gandalf3 since he pointed out that there is also toggle button in the header bar which makes this feature easier to access.

• Also note that there is a toggle for this in the header of the 3D view. screenshot – gandalf3 Nov 14 '14 at 1:34
• It's on the top-right of the 3D View-port in Blender 2.80. – Meetai.com Jan 30 at 5:34
