#2989 new defect

trackpoint readonly layers can not be selected, and don't show pproperties

While testing .16 ....

When you import a gpx file, or simply download the openstreetbugs layer you get a layer which is readonly.
These are shown, but you can not select any of the trackpoints. But to be able to see the properties of any such trackpoint, you need to select them. So the only way to get the properties, is to switch of the readonly mode of this layer, which is not a nice solution

I bet you have "Preferences-Data-Track layers readonly by default" ticked in, don't you?

Obviously, disabling it will make the track layers not read-only.

Please confirm and close the ticket if so.

Yes that is right, and the setting itself is fine.
So I think readonly is the right way.

But the point is, in readonly mode, you don't get the details, of any trackpoint.
Means I need to switch off the readonly mode, to see the properties, of any point.

I'm not sure how to do it in the right way, means I'd like to see the properties of the trackpoints maybe even without selectiing the points itself?
But I need a way to see the details-) Any sugestion welcome (of course removing the readonly is one possibility, but obviously not the best one, as there are reasons to have them imported ones to be read-only) I'll attach an example of a file, which I import, so you might know what I mean.

Fact is the read-only mode was specifically created to unclutter hover/selection in crowded areas, especially when downloading GPX from OSM.

I bet you mostly want to see the details of waypoints, right?

What about still displaying the details of a feature in the info dock when hovering on a read-only layer, but with no snapping on the actual map?
