I'm new to QGIS. Can anyone either direct me to a good tutorial or explain? I want to draw freehand new shape layers on to Google Earth to map vegetation types and embedded data for each feature. I am able to draw a shapes as a layer on the map, but I don't understand if or how to customise the attribute table for that layer and every time I try to draw a new shape for that layer it comes up with window saying id. or should I be using one of the different database functions?

Thanks for your time.
