The Field calculator button in toolbar is disabled when switching in editmode of a vector layer. You need to go Attribute table -> field calculator.

What do you suggest?

Personally, I think it would be nice if clicking on the toolbar's Field Calculator activated the "editing mode" and opened the Field Calculator Panel.

#2 Updated by Noone Noone about 9 years ago

The button needs to follow the same states as the button at the attribute table (consistency).
Enabling edit-mode can be done, but then the use of keeping this write-lock might be questionable?

apparently master is not affected, but it's reproducable on 2.0.1

then closing as usual in this cases?

This should happen (in 2.0.1) only for point layer, with line and polygon layer should be working.
I had fixed this issue in e6154cf4c8dc170ef6e7e7830ff27781a5e0be5a
