Refactor Fields

Refactor fields can be used to:

    • Change field names and types
    • Add and remove fields
    • Reorder fields
    • Calculate new fields based on expressions
    • Load field list from another layer

Refactor Fields can be found in the Processing Toolbox:

QGIS Refactor Fields

Layer Properties

Layer Properties can be used to:

    • Change field names and types
    • Add and remove fields

Open the properties of the layer in QGIS, then click on the 'Fields' section and make it editable.
