Feature request #6310

Streamline all geoprocessing workflow

Added by Jeffrey Meyer almost 5 years ago. Updated over 1 year ago.

Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Easy fix?:No


I'm not sure what % of geoprocessing workflow cases this covers, but I believe the following multiple clicks (steps 2-4) could be compressed into 1 click:

1. Menu: select [geoprocessing step foo (e.g. Buffer)
2. Dialog: Fill out foo form - click "OK"
3. Dialog: Would you like to add to TOC - click "Yes" (duh! not sure why "No" is the default here... maybe I'm a noob & don't trust things enough)
4. Dialog: Fill out foo form - click "Close" (duh! not sure why "Close" is the default here... again, what's the % of the time this is the case?)

Maybe a third button on the foo form - e.g. "Add to map and close" or something like that (wordy, I know...) would be good. The existing 3 click workflow is just too.... clicky?, especially with having to browse to rename a shapefile every time...

Hello, bug triage...

in QGIS 2.13 master (and probably in earlier versions), there is a "Add result to canvas" checkbox in the Buffer fTools. So the third point doesn't exist anymore.

If you want to go faster, just use Processing tools (QGIS -> Vector Geometry Tools -> Fixed distance Buffer) combined with the Processing option "Keep dialog open after running an algorithm" unchecked (which is the default) and you will just have to fill the dialog and click Ok button to have a ready to go layer result.

So, I think we can close this bug as the behavior you described already exists in QGIS and because fTools will be transfered to Processing (Processing tools will be used when using Vector/Raster menus).

Can you confirm ?

  • Resolution set to fixed/implemented
  • % Done changed from 0 to 100
  • Status changed from Feedback to Closed

Hello, bug triage...

I am closing this feature request for lack of feedback and because it seems to be implemented at least in QGIS master.

Feel free to reopen it if I have missed something !
