Bug report #14376

Double-clicking .qgs file opens with no data displayed

Added by Eric Ringer over 8 years ago. Updated about 5 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.8.2 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:end of life
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:22358


I am using Mac OS X 10.11.13 and QGIS 2.8.2.

In Finder I navigate to the .qgs file I want to open and double click. QGIS opens and the file opens but no data displays. The list layers show up in the layer window including the web baselayer but nothing actually renders. If I instead open QGIS first, then select Project>Open and navigate to the same file, then everything opens as normal. All shapefiles are stored in the same folder as the project file (.qgs).
