Bug report #148

Legend groups capture legend items

Added by Gavin Macaulay - over 17 years ago. Updated about 14 years ago.

Assignee:Marco Hugentobler
Category:Map Legend
Affected QGIS version: Regression?:No
Operating System:All Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied: Resolution:fixed
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:10207


1. Add a couple of layers to qgis
2. Create a legend group
3. Drag and drop a layer into the legend group
4. It is impossible to drag the layer back out of the legend group

Even if one drags a layer into the group, but doesn't drop the layer, it is still impossible to put the layer back outside of the group.

In summary - the legend group is greedy:)


#1 Updated by Marco Hugentobler over 17 years ago

If a legend layer is inside a legend group, an item called 'make to toplevel item' appears in the right click menu. Clicking on this takes a legend layer out of a group.
Probably it would be more usuable to drag a layer out of a group, but it's a bit hard to define what that means. One possibility would be to take a legend layer out of a group if it is dragged to the group in which it is contained. Maybe there are other possibilities?


#2 Updated by Marco Hugentobler about 17 years ago

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

With 863c74a3 (SVN r5587), it is now possible to swap layers in a group with toplevel layers (or to drag layers in a group directly into other groups). I hope that this, together with the right click menu entry 'make to toplevel item', is sufficient.
