Bug report #2292

qgis saves .SHP file as .shp

Affected QGIS version: Regression?:No
Operating System:Unix Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied: Resolution:fixed
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:12352


Load polygonal shapefile FOO.SHP (with FOO.DBF, FOO.SHX etc). Enable editing. Select two features and use Merge Selected Features. Disable editing and save changes. Qgis gives you FOO.shp, FOO.shx and FOO.dbf alongside your original files.

Just moving nodes around doesn't do this, but deleting a feature does, so I suspect it's whenever the structure changes and the whole shapefile needs rewriting....

Probably a Unixy case-sensitive file system problem only.

Looks like OGR's REPACK command causes that.

Fixed in OGR now

#4 Updated by Médéric RIBREUX almost 14 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

As it seems to be fixed in OGR (gdal 1.6.4), I guess that this bug can be marked as FIX cause it is not QGis related...

It will be fixed when you will get a new version of GDAL in your distribution !
