Description

When adding of vector layer, we can select many files in the file selection dialog. But for every file separate dialog with list of sublayers will be shown, even if all files have identical list of sublayers. It makes batch import inconvenient.

For example, I want to open all my GPX tracks without of converting it to single GPX file or to SHP.

I don't know how to 'fix' this. Probably, dialog with both files and common sublayers will be solution.

add vector layer -> dataset (browse) -> and then select "gpx" as the extension to look for

I get it wrong?
