Bug report #9594

Save output shapefile dialogue is slow to load filenames

When browsing to save the output shapefile of a tool, the browse dialogue box consistently takes several tens of seconds to populate the filenames, and is unresponsive during this time. The filenames are local, not network.


#1 Updated by Simon Bowyer about 10 years ago

More info, narrowing the problem and considerably reducing the impact:
A network drive was mapped but no longer available. Removing the drive mapping cured the problem.

When the 'Save output shapefile' dialogue box opens it may be trying to update that drive first even though only the local files are needing to be displayed.

  • Priority changed from High to Low

Not sure anything in Qgis could fix this.

#3 Updated by Matthias Kuhn about 10 years ago

  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

Is the "Save Output Shapefile" dialog the only one affected? Is there any difference for

  • The open dialogs (e.g. open project)
  • Other save as dialogs (e.g. save project as)
  • Other application's dialogs
