Feature request #15652

Updated by Johannes Kroeger over 2 years ago

Apparently some data formats (e.g. geopackage) load with better performance if they are opened in "read only" mode - esp. when loaded from a network share.

The add vector layer dialogue should therefore offer a "read only" flag for opening of vector formats that don't need to be edited.
