fTools: the option to load a layer after analyses should be on by default

The most intuitive behaviour for users is to have the result of an analysis on screen, right after performing it. Not having it should be the result of an explicit choice.

As this option is available in sextante I guess that does not make a lot of sense anymore to add it to the vector menu.

#2 Updated by Paolo Cavallini about 7 years ago

  • Status changed from Closed to Reopened
  • Resolution deleted (wontfix)

As it is a very trivial fix, anf fTools is going to stay at least in qgis 2.0, I suggest for the consistency of the interface to switch it on anyway.

Same issue in the option "Layer"/"Save selection as Vector file...".

The option to add the layer to the project is there, but isn't checked by default...

  • Target version set to Future Release - High Priority

#5 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 6 years ago

  • Target version changed from Future Release - High Priority to Version 2.4

Why this has not been fixed? It adds much to consistency, and it's very easy to do.
