Feature request #19790
Handle Bad Layers - DISABLE instead of DELETE
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||27615|
This is a request for a change to the "Handle Bad Layers" dialog. This should be a change to the QGIS core.
The scenario is working offline and loading a project with WMS or other unreachable layers defined. As the WMS is unreachable, the layers are marked as "bad". Since the layers are not fixable while offline, they get deleted from the project. This also happens when working remotely and not connected to network shares at the office.
It would be nice to be able to edit the layers locally stored on my laptop and not lose the definitions of the WMS or other "bad" layers in the the project.
I propose that the "bad" layers be somehow marked as "DISABLED" only for the duration of the current session working on the project. By not deleting these "bad" layers, they will be available the next time the project is opened where the source is actually reachable.
Further ideas are:
- "bad" layers which are disabled could also be marked with an exclamation point
- for the "disabled" layers, have the right click context menu have the options: delete, fix, hide(for this session only), ... *

Thanks for information and keeping on track.
May be, there could be some ideas from the maintainer of the "changeDataSource" plugin enrico ferreguti (enricofer).
