Bug report #17293

Updated by Jürgen Fischer about 4 years ago

I have categorised this with 'Processing QGIS', because you cannot give it more than one category, but it also applies to Processing OGR.

When you save to file in the QGIS fixed-distance buffer or in the OGR buffer vectors tool, the layer name is always 'Buffer'. In QGIS 2.14, the layer name would be the same as the shapefile name (for shapefiles ...).

I think it may count as a regression. Clearly, it is simple to manually edit the layer name, copy and paste from the source name, but this may not be obvious to some users.

It is about the buffers, so this is closely related to #17291. 17291.
