Bug report #17144

Deleting fields from empty layer causes first attribute to be renamed.

Added by Elisa Franchi over 6 years ago. Updated about 5 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:3.1(master) Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:no timely feedback

Hi all,
I have the following problem: if I delete one or more fields from a layer (shp) that contains no one record, the name of the first fields is changed when I save the data.
It does not happen if the layer contains at least one object or if before/after delating field I add at least another field.
How can I fix the problem?
