Bug report #11880

Toggling editing and saving edits becomes slow and freezes after time

Added by Charles Krolik-Root over 9 years ago. Updated over 9 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.6.0 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:invalid
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:Yes Copied to github as #:20094


After toggling editing on and off a number of times the button stays held down and toggling takes longer and longer with the whole program being left as '(Not Responding)'.

I'm experiencing a similar problem when saving edits. This causes a real problem because I have closed the program after waiting for around half an hour which has resulted in a corrupted shapefile. I also have noticed the problem more when using relatively large point shapefiles (8000+ points).

Closing QGIS and reopening seems to be a short term fix but it's not ideal since it is sometimes unclear as to when the problem may occur.

Causes crash or corruption should be set to 'Yes'

Apologies, unsure how to change this.

#2 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 9 years ago

  • Crashes QGIS or corrupts data changed from No to Yes
  • Priority changed from Normal to High
  • Status changed from Open to Feedback
  • Category set to Digitising

Does this happen with any layer? of any type of datasource (shapes, postgis, etc.)?

#3 Updated by Charles Krolik-Root over 9 years ago

I've only been using Shapefiles so I have only experienced this problem with them. Can't speak for other datasources.

Have you tried to run it with --noplugins?
This has previously been tracked back to plugins.
See #9229

#5 Updated by Charles Krolik-Root over 9 years ago

Removing digitising-related plugins seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
