I'm new to QGIS, and am trying to figure out if there is a way to view metadata within QGIS 3.10.1.
I'm adding layers downloaded from various state and federal websites, and the shapefiles include a .xml file (ISO-8859-1) - when opened with Notepad, it includes all the info I am looking for (namely, what the attribute names mean). It seems like there should be a way to view it from within QGIS - I found the Metadata tab under Layer Properties but nothing is there. At the bottom is an option to "Load Metadata", but when I browse to the .xml file associated with the shapefile it is greyed out.
I can copy and paste text into the Metadata tab from the file I have open in Notepad, but that would take way too long!
