I am using QGIS and I want to eliminate fields from 300 shapefiles.
All layers are loaded and selected.
Is there a way to enable all 300 for simultaneous editing?

You can use the following code in the Python Console which iterates through each loaded layer (regardless if they're selected or not) and deletes the field with the name you specify. Just replace
field_name with...a field name:
for layer in QgsMapLayerRegistry.instance().mapLayers().values(): with edit(layer): fields = layer.pendingFields() idx = layer.fieldNameIndex('field_name') layer.dataProvider().deleteAttributes([idx])
