Bug report #20515

Attribute Table issue: the changes to the column settings are not persistent

Added by Geo Dev over 5 years ago. Updated over 5 years ago.

Category:Attribute table
Affected QGIS version:3.5(master) Regression?:Yes
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:28335


The column settings are reset each time the Attribute Table is closed.

Steps to replicate the issue:
- create a new project
- load any vector layer with at least one feature and some attributes
- open the Attribute Table
- change the columns settings (right-click on the headers and change columns order, visibility and widths)
- close and reopen the Attribute Table: the changes are lost

The changes aren't set to the QgsAttributeTableConfig object (verified using python code).

The issue also occurs in QGIS 3.4.1 (new LTR) and it's OS independent.

It's a regression since in QGIS 2.18.25 and QGIS 3.2.3 the changes to the column settings are persistent as expected.
