Unable to rename feature

Post by MichaelvanK » Thu Jul 09, 2020 6:57 am

Hi Team,

This is an intermittent bug.

Sometimes, when I try to rename a feature, the name in the properties panel is correct (3) but in the layers panel it does not update (1).

I tried pressing Enter after typing it, which usually triggers an update in the layers panel, but this time it did not work.

I tried editing the name by right-clicking the feature in the layers panel (1) and selecting Rename but, as you can see, even after I have pressed OK on the popup (2), the name did not update.

The name in the properties panel retained the correct name.

UPDATE:
After I closed the map and re-opened it, the name was displaying correctly in the layers panel.

It sounds like a message issue, but I haven't been able to reproduce it yet. I've added it to our bug list. Has it happened with other item types or have you just seen it with the rivers? Is this on the canvas or a landmass?

Hi Katie,

It has happened on other items such as features, and this is on a landmass. I have not noticed it on the canvas level, but I have not tested exhaustively.

Hugs.
