Feature request #5115

Updated by Alister Hood almost 3 years ago

Someone might be interested in this:

I saw a request for another desktop GIS for the ability to save multiple symbology files for a layer (with a suffix after the layer name so they have unique file names). When loading the layer the different symbologies would be automatically detected and the user given a choice of which style to use.

Saving each symbology in a separate file doesn't seem very good to me because it risks naming conflicts (i.e. there might be other layers with the same file name plus a suffix). I think a better solution would be to save multiple symbologies in the same file. The downside of this would be that you couldn't just copy for another layer the .qml for a single style.
