Description

Hi,

when creating a new vector map using the GRASS toolsbox (e.g. buffer of
archsites in Spearfish dataset) or when loading an existing GRASS vector
map, the layer preset should be layer 1 and not layer 0 to show the
real map.

Related: when e.g. creating buffer of archsites in Spearfish dataset via
toolbox, then clicking on "show results" to display the resulting map
directly in QGIS, it loads layer 0 instead of layer 1. This is a bit
confusing.

thanks
Markus

Do you mean that new map should be loaded on top of existing maps or do you mean something different?

#2 Updated by neteler-itc-it - almost 14 years ago

I mean something different:

sometimes (not with all GRASS vector maps, who knows why), there are two layers when loading a vector map numbered "0" and "1". The "1" layer is of interest but QGIS loads the "0" layer per default.

Example:

Spearfish60 sample data set (http://grass.itc.it/sampledata/spearfish_grass60data-0.3.tar.gz). If you load from the mapset PERMANENT the "fields" polygon vector map, the dialog let's you select 0_polygon (default) and 1_polygon. Here the default should be the 1_polygon instead
(so that I don't have to change it for ever map manually). If you load the (default) 0_polygon, you see the islands and stuff instead of the real map which would be 1_polygon.

Suggestion: QGIS should always take the highest available layer, not the lowest as currently. A rather trivial fix...

thanks,
Markus
