Since the merge of the legend refactoring raster layers added to the map have their legend expanded by default. This is a change from 2.2, where they were not expanded initially. I personally think the previous behavior was preferred, as rasters with a large number of palettes colors end up taking up a huge amount of space in the legend.

[layertree] Fix #10449 (auto-collapse layer if symbology has >= 10 items)


#1 Updated by Martin Dobias over 7 years ago

Rather than having the collapsed layer nodes just for paletted raster layer, maybe it makes sense to have a threshold (number of symbology items - e.g. 25) when the node would be collapsed? So it would work also for vector layers if the number of categories / ranges / rules gets too high.

What do you think?

#2 Updated by Nyall Dawson over 7 years ago

Good idea. This also means rasters with a small number of graduated classes would get expanded, which is a nice touch. I'd suggest a smaller threshold though, maybe 10?
