Description

  1. Open properties for a shapefile layer (not tested with other types, yet)
  2. Choose to save .qml style file
  3. Crash

Reportedly worked fine on May 16, 2013.

Crash report from Mac OS 10.7.5 attached, though I do not think it is a platform-specific issue.

[Fix #7877] Crash when saving layer style as qml

History

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 6 years ago

confirmed on Linux.

#2 Updated by ramon . over 6 years ago

Confirmed Windows (7 - 64bit).

Suspect also causing crashes when loading saved styles as well.

I've dumps from windows if they're helpful for both the save and load case. They're too big to load up here, but I can put them somewhere if they'll help.

  • Status changed from Closed to Reopened

Tentative reopening, not sure if this should be a new bug, but:
When trying to save a style, nothing happens. No crash, but also nothing saved.
When trying to save as 'sld' format, gives error:
"ERROR: failed to create sld file as . Check file permissions and retry."

(am just saving in a documents subfolder in windows 7. layer type is csv points)

it works fine for CSV layers on QGIS master. Are you using QGIS master? Seems anyway a local (permissions?) issue. Eventually attach a project (with data) to allow us replicate the issue.

Hi Giovanni.
I updated my Win7 copy to latest master this afternoon, checked again, didn't work. All my files are saved in my dropbox folder in My Documents, which isn't a restricted access folder, and I've been saving various other files there today (interpolations, etc., as well as vector styles). On my linux copy (also latest master), which uses all the same files thanks to the dropbox sync, I can save the csv style, both as qml and sld.
Any thoughts why the windows7 build might have this problem when the linux one doesn't?

Confirmed under Windows, at least for CSV layers added with the "add delimited text" tool.

it is anyway a different issue from the originally reported here, and it is also not a regression as it doesn't work also on qgis 1.8. I will file a separate ticket.
