I have a strange problem in QGIS 2.2 (problem is also present in QGIS 2.1). When I add a point (shapefile) layer, apply graduated style and change point size, everything looks fine. Then I save project, reopen it, and some of the points are missing.

When I open attribute table all points are there, but some of them are not shown on the map. Usually those point are in the middle of the map. I noticed that number of mising points depends on selected "on the fly" CRS (before save). When I remove graduated style then all points show up on the map... Zooming, refreshing view and changing projection doesn't help.

After save

    What values do the missing points have? Does it get better if you start your graduate style at 0.9?

  • I use 5 classes with equal interval from 0.9999 to 1.0002. I tried using 0.9 but it doesn't help. Apr 24, 2014 at 7:51
  • Example of point value: 0.9999017173 Apr 24, 2014 at 7:56
  • Ok, I just tried to change lower value to 0.9 and upper value to 1.1, and it works! This much better solution than the first one I accidentally came up. Is this expected behavior of QGIS, or some kind of bug? Thank you. Apr 24, 2014 at 10:20

I guess you encountered some kind of rounding error when writing the graduated style to the project file.

Try with some larger intervall, like 0.99 to 1.01
