I am trying to load a .qml style file to CORINE land cover maps, but the application generates an automatic color ramp.


Update: The problem still exists in QGIS 3.4.

In QGIS 3.2 after loading qml, if I click "Apply" then colors change: After applying the colors change.

In QGIS 2x, loading the style from the qml works as expected:

The problematic CLC .qml style file:

  • I downloaded your data and i didn't have problems, what is your problem? could you show us an image? – Carlos López Quintanilla Sep 3 '18 at 22:22
  • An imperfect solution if you use the same name for the .qml and .tiff file. – pnz Sep 4 '18 at 15:51
  • @Carlos López Quintanilla : What version do you use? – pnz Sep 19 '18 at 21:33
  • I use QGIS 3.2 "Bonn" – Carlos López Quintanilla Sep 20 '18 at 11:15

Try to modify this template:

**Here is an example of a working .qml:**
`<!DOCTYPE qgis PUBLIC 'http://mrcc.com/qgis.dtd' 'SYSTEM'>

  • Thanks for the advice, I gonna check it, and accept if working. – pnz Nov 1 '18 at 23:24
  • I removed some parts of your answer, which mislead me a bit. The provided good template solved the issue, after the review I will accept your answer. – pnz Feb 16 at 23:51

    Glad it helped you. I feel like the current answer will not be very helpful to many people especially those new to QGIS. Did this method work for you? In QGIS 3: Go to layer properties > style. Now load the qml but before closing the dialog open "Min/max value setting" and select "User defined". – Baswein Feb 19 at 14:17
