Running 3.4.6 on Windows 10. Until today I have had no problems creating new shapefiles and fields. Now when I create a new shapefile everything in the new dialog box works as usual when I create fields, then when done I click OK to save and open the attribute table the fields are not there and the visible fields are "Actions" and "_1", "_2" etc. depending on the number of fields originally created. I get the same result when I try to add fields. I have tried this with multiple new shapefiles. How do I get the normal behavior for adding new shapefiles and fields?
I am getting an SIP module error disabling Python on startup. This is probably the source of the problem but I can't seem to fix that. I have posted question and photo of error messages at Couldn't load SIP Module but if anyone here can help please let me know!
