I already have about 100 values in a field in QGIS. I set it to 50 characters because I was thinking that would be enough. But that was wrong. I need more space in the column. But there is no way to change it. In the usual editor you only can remove or add a new field.
And in the "advanced" table manager you can change the position and rename it. But nowhere where I edit the length of a field.
The only thing I could do is creating a new field with more space. Then import the data somehow. But does that work somehow? Or is there a way to edit the text length afterwards. I'm also interested in hacks.
And yes I really need that. There is no way to get the string any shorter. I think 100 chars are fine.
Now it came to mind the following. Could maybe someone tell if that is working before I try that. So First of all I would create a new field with 100 chars column. Than select all old features and CTRL-X them and CTRL-V into the new shape.
Will that work out?
