From this morning if I open a qgis project all the shapefiles are not editable anymore. I've tried different projects in both 2.14 and 2.16 qgis versions. Has anyone encountered the same problem?

Here are the capabilities properties of the shapefile

Here is the "greyed out" toggle editor

  • Have you set a filter on the shapefiles? Or are they on an USB stick? – AndreJ Sep 5 '16 at 12:46
  • nope to both questions – Mattia Sep 5 '16 at 12:49

    Do you have admin access to the shapefiles? Could you use the Save As... option to resave it as another shapefile and see if that could be edited? – Joseph Sep 5 '16 at 14:48
  • I think we had some problems on the permission on the server.. but we're still trying to figure out what's happened! – Mattia Sep 5 '16 at 14:57

    Maybe two connections to the same file? I.e. an old connection not closed? – AndreJ Sep 5 '16 at 16:54
