I am new to QGIS. I have one picture with the attribute table I created and the greyed out toolbar. Yes, I have it in "Toggle editing" but doesn't seem to make a difference....even after I close out of the attribute table. Am I missing something?

The shapefile (trap_location) is for points, and agri_landscape is for polygons.

  • Your table does not have geometries. Is it a CSV? – MrXsquared Sep 23 '19 at 20:03
  • @MrXsquared The guide I have only specifies to build the Grid_code and farm columns, setting them as integer and text, respectively. The table is set as a starting point before starting polygons. If I add rows of information I still cannot edit.... – Rachel Brockamp Sep 23 '19 at 20:12
  • Yes, because it isnt a geometry table. You can only edit or add geometries to a geometry-table. Do you want to create new geometry informations or edit existing ones? – MrXsquared Sep 23 '19 at 20:15
  • @MrXsquared Create new. – Rachel Brockamp Sep 23 '19 at 20:17
  • You can click on "New Shapefile layer" or "New Geopackage layer" for example. Make sure to set the correct geometry-type and add the columns you want it to have. – MrXsquared Sep 23 '19 at 20:21

You can not use advanced digitizing bar here because your layer isnt a geometry layer. To create a new layer with geometries you can click on "New Shapefile layer" or "New Geopackage layer" for example. Make sure to set the correct geometry-type and add the columns you want it to have.

I had the same problem with a coordinate system set to Geographic (EPSG:4326). When I changed it back to a projected coordinate system the Advanced Digitizing tab re-activated.
