Georeferencer incorrectly shows last image when reopened

Added by Antoine Lafranchis over 5 years ago.

Category:C++ plugins/Georeferencer
Affected QGIS version:3.0.2 Regression?:No
Operating System:Windows 10 Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:26700


Steps to reproduce:
  • Open Georeferencer
  • Open raster .tif image
  • Add some GCP points
  • In the options, choose Thin Plate Spline transformation and select an output destination
  • Click Start and when finished close Georeferencer
  • When asked, click Yes to save points in a file
  • Open again Georeferencer
  • The last image appears to be open, but with no control points
  • Click Start, it says there is no raster loaded
What happens:
  • When reopened, Georeferencer appears to remember the last image that was opened and displays it. However it doesn't remember GCP points and output destination. New control points can't be added. In order to Georeference it again, the image must be reopened.
What should happen:
  • Option 1: Close everything when Georeferencer is closed, reopen it empty like the first time it's opened
  • Option 2: Fully reopen image (not only displayed) and remember its GCP points and options
