Is it possible to set the default dock position for the attribute table? I have a pretty long list of fields and 1-N relations to be displayed. Now I need to always drag and drop the window and I was wondering if it is possible to avoid it and have it always on the right.

  • Do you want to display "one" or "multiple" attribute tables at a time? – Kadir Şahbaz Feb 20 at 12:24
  • One table at a time. If I right-click a layer and select show attribute table, I want it to be the dock to the right – Nil Feb 20 at 14:59

I don't think there is an option for this yet. But you can make a simple tool which opens the table on the right. Run the script in QGIS Python Editor. It adds a toolbar containing a tool.

def open_attr_table_on_the_right():
    attr_table = iface.showAttributeTable(iface.activeLayer())
    widgets = QApplication.instance().allWidgets()
    attrTables = [t for t in widgets if t.objectName() == u'AttributeTable']
    for table in attrTables:
        iface.addDockWidget(Qt.RightDockWidgetArea, table)

action = QAction("Open A.T.")
new_toolbar = iface.addToolBar("Open Attribute Table")

This script displays a newly opened table on the right and moves other attribute tables already opened to the right.
