Bug report #13338

problems with the style of simple markers in pointlayers in QGIS 2.10 (Pisa) for OSX Useres

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:21391


In QGIS 2.10.1 the styles of simple markers in pointlayers can't be changed anymore. For example it isn't possible to change the frame/border color of a point symbol. It appears just a text: "Dieser Layer hat keine änderbaren Eigenschaften" (in english something like: This Layer has no changeable characteristics).

Could you test in QGIS master?

This issue still exists with Master (QGIS 2.11 downloaded 7 October 15 from Dakota Carto) on Lion 10.7.5 : unable to stylize vector layer.

Can you try removing (or renaming) your .qgis2 preferences folder and retest? It's possible this is caused by a bad plugin.

Thank you.
I have removed the files located here :
and I still cannot modify style of vector layers.

Hi Julien,

The folder Nyall was referring to is located at ~/.qgis2, but because it is prefixed with a '.' it is not visible by default in the Finder. You can rename it temporarily by issuing the following commands in Terminal (first ensure QGIS is not running):

mv ~/.qgis2 ~/.qgis2_off

Then relaunch QGIS. This will create a new, fresh folder at ~/.qgis2, which will be devoid of any previous (possibly problematic) plugins you may have installed.

To restore the older renamed folder after testing, do (first ensure QGIS is not running):

mv ~/.qgis2 ~/.qgis2_test
mv ~/.qgis2_off ~/.qgis2

Hi Larry,
Thank you for your answer. I’ve tried to rename the folder and I think it did work well (it has removed the plugins). But sadly it didn’t fix the vector issue.
Do you know if we are only a few of mac users encountering this issue (maybe because of particular settings) or if it can be a "compatibility issue" with some versions of OS X ?
Thanks again

Hmm. I am not able to reproduce this with latest Mac nightly on 10.9 or 10.10 using a blank project and loading a Natural Earth places point layer.

Can anyone who is seeing this error share a stripped-down project and data file?
