QGIS v3.4.4

New project and trying to add a shapefile (line) layer w/ manual data entry.

  1. Layer>Create layer>New Shapefile layer

  2. Fill out the form w/ a file name, geometry type and I added a Date field to the list w/ the default id field
  3. Click OK
  4. "Layer creation failed. Please check message log for further information"
  5. Message log has time stamp, "WARNING: (blank)"

What am I missing?
