I am trying to work in QGIS and I am very inexperienced with it. I recently was able to import several shapefiles into a SpatiaLite database and I need metadata to go with these shapefiles. 4 out of 5 my shapefiles were created in QGIS and I put metadata in under their Properties, but I do not see this metadata when I open them from SpatiaLite. The other shapefile was download from a county GIS data portal but had no metadata entered in.
I have already tried the Metatools plugin, but the buttons where I can try and edit the metadata appear to be grayed out and I'm not sure how to fix it and use it.
How can I put in metadata for the shapefiles in the SpatiaLite database in QGIS?
