I have a set of layers from PostGIS that I have converted to offline. I am attempting to edit them via GPS.

If the layer is point data, then I can add in that data without issue. However when I go to edit a polygon or line, it will not allow be to add a feature based on GPS location.

The geometry i'm using is MultiLine and MultiPolygon - I am about to try and edit this, but is there anything else causing issue here?

Secondly - QGIS docs say I can convert a WFS to offline - however whenever I try to convert my WFS (served through GeoServer) it just crashes.

The GPS data format does not know polygon features (only points and lines), so you will not be able to import and edit them.

I suggest to use a shapefile format or spatialite database for off-Postgis-use.
