Is there any tool/plugin for QGIS to easily select feature and edit attributes

March 6Hits:3
Advertisement

I need to select polygons and change some attributes in a shapefile. I'm using Quantum GIS - I select the polygon, open attribute table and edit the attributes I want. I know there must be an easier and faster way to do this. I was thinking in some tool which when the feature is selectd pop-up a form with the respective attributes and lets you edit them.

Answers

The "Identify" tool will let you do this. There's a setting under Settings > Options > Map Tools tab > Open Feature Form, if a single feature is identified. Then just make sure your layer is editable, and click the feature with the identify tool.

Try this handy plugin http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/QuickMultiAttributeEdit/
