editing layer name broken - up to a segfault

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:11500


1. Add, say, 3 shapefiles.

2. Highlight the 1st one.

3. Press F2 to change it's name - all is OK. You change the name, press Enter.

4. Highlight another one.

5. Press F2 to change it's name - nothing happens this time. Bad.

6. Right click it > change name - OK, but the first letter you enter does not pop in. Bad. Anyway - finish changing the name, Enter.

7. As F2 is not working anymore, right click another layer, start changing its name but don't confirm with Enter. Select another layer on the list or press ESC instead. This way you will end up with many layers in the course of name change, which should not take place - pressing ESC or selecting another layer while editing some layer's name should IMO cancel edits. Moreover, sometimes QGIS crashes in this circumstances:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 15 years ago

Actually this seems to me that have been fixed, at least for what concerns the renaming layers trough the "F2" key.

Please give it a try and report back.

I tested QGis 1.2 under both Ubuntu 9.04 (trunk) and Windows (osgeo4w) and all seems fine. Now if you try renaming a layer with the F2 key, you can exit/stop editing the name by just clicking another layer, pressing Enter or pressing ESC.

Still bugged is renaming trough

Right click --> rename

but there is another ticket open on this


I'll drop this note there. Seems that could be easily fixed.

#2 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 15 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Closing. Reopen if necessary.
