When I add layers to my QGIS project, the name of the layer is listed in the Layers Panel. So far, so good. Recently QGIS changed and now the name is repeated and the geometry type is added. For instance, if I have a layer called RoadSegment, it is listed in the Layers Panel as RoadSegment roadsegment LineString. It only seems to happen with shape files, not with data from my database.
How can I stop this?
I'm using QGIS 2.14.4 on a Win 7 64bit machine.
