User Feedback

We have loaded and visualized some large layers (OSM polygons, lines and points of Germany, EPSG:3857) out of a compressed ESRI File GDB (V. 10.1) in QGIS 3.4.1. Styling is saved to a qlr-File, which is loaded into QGIS. While Zooming in or out, QGIS crashes.

QGIS and FileGDBAPI driver have been installed via OSGeo4W with versions below, but also with previous versions of QGIS 3 this behaviour was present. With the File GDB uncompressed, the issue is not present. But as we work very much with compressed ESRI File GDB, this issue is very critical for us.

Try with a new/clean profile (no 3rd party plugins)?

Attach/link the project with the data.

Likely an issue in the ESRI FileGDBAPI sdk or gdal's driver, not qgis. Try with the openfilegdb driver instead.

Unfortunately gdbs remain one of the worst formats for use outside of the ESRI ecosystem, and I'd strongly recommend exploring alternative formats.
