Bug report #642
Edit of MetaData Extents
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|

Shapefile was created digitizing a Google Image as base. Raster file extents were changed to reflect correct lon/lat values. Shapefile does not accept edit of MetaData extents. Similar problem with Graticule creation. MetaData shows that Ymin and Ymax values are the same.Values from creation form are incorrectly recorded. Format of Graticule is not correct and I am unable to modify MetaData values to correct formating error. Result: a line shape file where extents are incorrect. Problem: Inability to edit shapefile metadata.

Editing of metadata in QGIS is not supported. The reporting of ymin ymax is carried out by the underlying provider (gdal/ogr) in your case. The provider looks at the bounding box of all features in your dataset and sets x/y min/max accordingly. This is not a bug, but normal behaviour.
I am closing this ticket, feel free to continue the discussion with clearer explanation of the issues if needed, being sure to provide small sample datasets that can be used to replicate the issue.
