Description

As groups panel is organized as a tree, shouldn't a custom group show at its level symbols from groups that may be embeded in it? This is somehow the behaviour of "Groups" level.

This is somehow the behaviour of "Groups" level.

Yes, and this is the reason why there is the Ungrouped entry under the Groups level.

Another solution could be to allow the selection of multiple groups. Select all child groups could be added to the context menu for convenience.

IMHO the Ungrouped entry should be moved to the top level in either case.

  • Resolution set to fixed/implemented
  • Target version set to Version 3.0
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

"Fixed" in commit 5e487cf; as of QGIS 3.0, tags have replaced groups.

To emulate the group / subgroup, you'd use the following tag names: "group", "group/subgroup1", "group/subgroup2", which would display in the style dock the same way subgroups where before, ie:

- group
- group/subgroup1
- group/subgroup2

You can tag symbols with group, and any of the subgroups.
