Bug report #17157

Georeferencer seems properly not to close the opened file handle after closing georef window, open a new file, even create new or open another project.

Added by sand thorn almost 4 years ago. Updated over 2 years ago.

Category:C++ plugins/Georeferencer
Affected QGIS version:3.4.4 Regression?:No
Operating System:Windows 10 64-bit Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:25056


How to reproduce:
1. Open Georeferencer.
2. Open a raster.
3. From this point, the file handles stay held forever until application exits.
- Reset georefence/open another file/close window/new project: don't affect existing of file handles.
- One can not move/rename/write the file.

This can be considered a minor pet peeve, when you want to move things around after that.

Release file handle on
- menu command
- close georeferencer window
would be convenient.

I confirm that QGIS 3.4.4 is still affected with this no-closing-file georeferencer issue.

Once a file get open in georeference. You can not modified the file until the whole application exits.
