Description

Both Windows 7 and UbuntuGIS versions of QGIS Master have an abnormaly Large Layer New Vector Layer GUI. Go to Layer -> Create Layer -> New Shapefile Layer. On my laptop it takes up 80% of the screen on linux and about 70% on windows. It appears to be abnormally large when compared to the other menus in 2.7

History

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 4 years ago

  • OS version deleted (2.7)
  • Operating System deleted (Windows Linux)
  • Priority changed from Normal to Severe/Regression

Confirmed, this happens if QGIS has added a custom CRS to its list, so that combobox shows the entire proj4 string, that can be very long.

I'm thinking this may have also migrated into "Save as..." when right clicking on a layer. I don't remember the GUI being this large before today's update on master.

this new combox box has been applied in any place where the user could previously select a CRS, so this issue is likely to show in many places.
