Well the title tells it already. I have a column name and 100 objects. I have given them all a name. Now I mentioned that I have written some wrong of them. So I tried to correct them by double click and rename. But when I leave the name it remains the old name. I need to close the Attribute table and reopen it, then I see that it has taken the name.

This happen just to some of my entries! Most are working properly and change is done without reopening.

I just want to know if it's a bug or a feature :D I mean I know know that he just do not show it to me. But it's a bug that can be easily fixed I think.

    Same here, seems like a bug. It only happens if you have sorted the objects by the column you want to change. Other columns behave normal.

Hopefully it can be resolved for QGIS 2.8 which will be out soon.

  • Awesome! This little but happened to me a couple of times, looking forward to testing 2.8.
