In legend right click layer name, choose rename and then try to cancel rename action without actually renaming layer. Only way how to cancel renaming is by changing atleast single letter in layer's name.

Still a issue on QGIS 1.2 (rev. 10988 on Ubuntu 9.04).

#4 Updated by Giovanni Manghi about 15 years ago

I just noticed that editing layer names using the "F2" key seems to work fine now


you can exit/stop editing names (even if you haven't changed the name at all) by just selecting another layer, pressing enter or esc.

I guess this should help fixing the problem of editing trough

right click -> rename

especially when no changes are made.



right click -> rename

a layer, rename it and press "esc" to exit. Qgis 1.2 (rev. 11015, Ubuntu 9.04) crashes (seg fault).
