Bug report #12668

Edit widget properties not saved

Added by Edward Rollason almost 9 years ago. Updated over 8 years ago.

Category:Edit widget
Affected QGIS version:2.8.1 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:not reproducable
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:20775


If I set a layer up with edit widget properties anything other than "Text Edit" this remains saved only as long as the workspace is open. Closing the workspace down and reopening it resets all widgets back to a default text edit setting without any multi-line options.

  1. I've only tested this on Mac as I don't have access to a windows machine with QGIS loaded.

OS X 10.10.3

QGIS installed from KyngChaos.com:

Closing the workspace down and reopening it

Did you save and reload the project? That's where the settings are saved.

  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

#3 Updated by Jakob Hvitnov almost 9 years ago

Tested on QGIS dev in Ubuntu 14.04 for every edit widget type with no issues.
All edit widgets selectors keep their selected state after saving the project, restarting QGIS and opening the project again.
Attached is the shape file used for testing this issue. - maybe a mac user can try it out?
