Description

Hi,
there is a little bug concerned the selection of objects/entities .... (see step 3)
what happen? if you try to
1) make a selection of one or more objects ....
2) next, using the CTRL key (usually used to 'add new items' to a selection) if u choose to add a single entity/object it work correctly .......
3) BUT if u try to add a 'gruop' of entities/objects using the 'selection area' (still using the CTRL key togheter) ... the QGis don't add neither of those objects ....
opposite it work correctly (don't add any new selected objects to a current selection) ....
4) il you try to deselect a gruop of objects (sub Group of current selected objects) using a 'selection object
area and with the CTRL key pressed' it work correctly .....

i hope that i was "clear" or however that you can understand what i'm trying to mean.

have a nice day!
Roberto.

se seleziono l'opzione di simbolo in gruppo di punti mi viene riferito: "the point displacement renderer only applies to (single) point layer, name_file is not (single) point layer and cannot be displayed by the point displacement render"????

the point layer cannot be of type MULTIpoint, that is the meaning. Anyway this is not related to the issue described in this ticket.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from Open to Rejected

In QGIS shift + select is used to add to a selection, CTRL + select is used to take away from an existing selection.
