Description

When editing a data table for a layer it is possible to accidentally overtype the FID field causing an error when saving the layer.

If one is very fortunate one can try to make up a FID that will fit in the field because there is no apparent way of recalling the correct value that will work with the data table (Geopackage).

This field should be rendered incapable of being overtyped as there is no sane reason for it being possible to accidentally overtype the field.
