I think it would be good to separate the two options for creating a new vector layer:

"Create Spatiallite layer"
"Create Shapefile layer"

A menu for only two options is not optimal, and there would be enough space to put the two options in the normal menu below each other.

  • Priority changed from Normal to Low
  • Category set to GUI

Why is the current solution not optimal?
Is there the need to use both alternately?

For what I think:

  • Every button that can be hidden leaves more room for others / more space for the map / reduces visual clutter
  • I assume that most people use either always shapefile or always spatialite

#2 Updated by Nathan Woodrow over 7 years ago

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

There is no need for another tool button on the toolbar for this. I think we will creating a flexible Create New X dialog in the next version.
