Why "geom"? Isn't the name of the geometry column just a matter of taste?

#2 Updated by Jürgen Fischer over 6 years ago

  • Subject changed from PostGIS column worngly named "qgs_geometry" to PostGIS column wrongly named "qgs_geometry"

#3 Updated by Sandro Santilli over 6 years ago

Agreed, matter of taste. Which is also why I want the geometry column name in the layer name ...

#4 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 6 years ago

It is a matter of taste, but the current situation is utterly confusing for the users:

  • when dropping from browser to DB manager>geom
  • when dropping from browser to browser>qgs_geometry

#5 Updated by Sandro Santilli over 6 years ago

It would surely be nice to encode own's taste into a central qgis configuration

#6 Updated by Jürgen Fischer over 6 years ago

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

implemented in 2a542487cf.
