Bug report #18039

Hiding a Map View removes it from project without a warning.

Added by Richard Duivenvoorde about 6 years ago. Updated almost 6 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:3.1(master) Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:25935


Creating an issue as asked in this thread:


Would be good to warn a user when he/she closes a mapview that it is not saved in the project anymore, something along the line of: "Note: if you close this view, it will not be saved in your project"

I think this remark:
is not related is it? I think that is about a problem about saving floating widgets?

I've investigated - unfortunately it's not possible to do this without gross hacks. Qt provides no way to intercept the close event for dock widgets selectively - so we can only trigger a message box on ALL closes (including unwanted events like those triggered by loading a new project, closing qgis). I think that's a step back in UX.
