Description

e.g.
1. with this option enabled in the settings, style a polygon layer with a "simple fill".
2. click in the symbol tree on "Simple fill", then click "Color" below to open the color chooser dialog. Click on a different color and the colors in the symbol tree and in the symbol preview area to the right will "live update".
3. click instead on "Fill" in the symbol tree, then open the color chooser dialog. Click on a color and the colors in the tree and the preview will not live update.
This doesn't seem terribly important, but it is a regression from 2.18

History

I think we should drop that setting - live colour edits are better done through the styling panel and other non- blocking dialogs.

#2 Updated by Alister Hood over 2 years ago

Note that it is not talking about "live updating" on the map canvas, which I expected when I first saw the option. Given this, I don't know why anyone would ever want it turned off, but it is off by default in QGIS3.
