Bug report #18156

I can not edit the DXF file. I am curious why this is happening. Is this a natural phenomenon?

I tried to edit the DXF file by importing it from Qgis, but the edit mode did not work. How can I activate edit mode? Can DXF switch to edit mode?
If not, I want to know why. Finally, is there a plug-in that can edit DXF files?

There is no in-place edit support for DXF (this would need to be added in the GDAL library). You'll need to save the layer to another format, such as shapefile and then edit.
