Bug report #1571
layers loose group when moving referenced shape-files
|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 #:||11631|
Steps to reproduce:
0) in the legend window, create groups and drop different layers to different groups (to keep everything nice and orderly)
1) move referenced shape file to new location
2) open qgis project -> qgis will ask you to locate the shape-files
3) after re-referencing the shape files, everything will be ok EXCEPT: in the legend window, the order with groups and layers is lost. The layers are now all at the root-level again.The groups are still there but empty.

Made tests with QGIS 1.2 under both Windows and Linux.
I cannot replicate this behaviour, as actually when the program asks about the moved shape and the new location is given, it is added at the top of legend, outside its original group, but group order is respected, and the other shapes are in the right group.
This behaviour seems reasonable to me. Closing?
