I have a vector layer that I add observations to by identifying features in georeferenced rasters (images). One of the attributes I want to assign to the feature is the image name (which I currently read from the layers tab and enter manually into the attributes table). Ideally, I would like for this to be read automatically, but at least I would like to only have to enter this once, for the first observation from a newly opened image, and for this value to be the default for new points selected. Is there a way to accomplish this?
Yes, you can set option to reuse last entered values. To do that:
- Open Settings menu -> Options...
- Open Digitizing tab
- In "Feature creation" group check "Reuse last entered attribute values"
