In Vector properties > General > Layer name there is a field called "displayed as", apparently useless and confusing, as it seems just an echo of the adjoining field "Layer name"

#1 Updated by Antonio Locandro over 9 years ago

Layer name could be the name in a postgis table for example, displayed as I would say should work more like an alias, in my opinion Layer name shouldn't be editable and just be read only as this gives you the name of the layer in provider, displayed as should be editable so people can use another name if desired, of course by default it would echo layer name

As it is right now it's useless but as I have outlined above it could be useful

#2 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 9 years ago

The current behaviour is not that outlined by Antonio. I suggest removing the current label, and open a new feature request to add what Antonio is asking.
