I simply want to label a column in the attributes table as: "line 1", "line 2", "line 3" etc. I am sure there's an easy fix but couldn't find the exact solution from other posts.

(using QGIS 2.18.7)

Each row represents a different line feature (GPS track)


the simpelst form I can think of is:

  • Open field calculator and update the field with:

    concat( 'line ',  $id)
  • the result would be "line 1", "line 2" and so on

  • if you need to start at 1 use:

    concat( 'line ',  $id +1)
  • This is almost there, but it starts at "line 0" any way to make it start at "line 1"? – Nebulloyd Jul 4 '17 at 11:40
