I am using a geopackage with a number of tables, some of which I have added in a Value Map to the fields. The value map is to ensure consistent entry of codes to the data to comply with a specified schema by the client.

When editing via the Attribute Table, I would like to be able to flip between displaying either the "Value" or the "Description".

The reason is that if I have a few edits the drop down list of "Descriptions" is handy. However if I want to use the update bar at the top of the table to do a bulk edit (eg Update All), I cant recall the a corresponding "values" and it create errors if I get it incorrect.

Is there a way to flip the display of the attribute table so that it alternates between the two options (values or description).

My usage is the creation of work as executed data. I convert the surveyors informaiton into GIS and then add attributes to it. Initially I would do an "bulk" update all bar (using the "values") to get the information say 90% correct, and then use the "Descriptions" to fine tune the remaining features.


You can make a column invisible by editing its widgets in Layer Properties > Attributes Form
