Bug report #19196

Handle Bad Layers bulk edit

Added by Brenna Hughes about 6 years ago. Updated almost 6 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.18.20 Regression?:No
Operating System:Windows 7 Pro Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:not reproducable
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:27025


I've had to fix all the layers on a few projects lately, and they've had the same behavior problem:
The Handle Bad Layers window fails to apply to all selected items. It seems to work on about half those selected, so I have to iterate through until the last one is done manually. Screenshots attached.
The process is especially slow as the bulk folder selection doesn't remember previous locations.

It is easiest if you add a project + some datafiles. Then people can confirm and/or debug that.

I've tried to reproduce it with a project with 5 shapefiles from a directory, closing the project, then renaming the containing dir and then load the project again, browsing to the new files.
All seem to load fine. (though I had the feeling once I missed one...).

Can you describe a clear scenario when this reproducible happens?
Or is it only with >10 layers or so?
Preferably with some data, as said.
