Hi Jakob,

although a bit late: Have you tried the plugin DataDrivenInputMask [1]?
By using it there is no need to fiddle with QGIS relations, the drawback is that there is no undo. You have to properly define foreign keys and not null columns for the plugin to work. And, as Andreas already pointed out, indices on foreign key columns are normally advisable.

Hi Jakob,

I don't think there is much background information or documentation
available on relations.

The obvious questions to you are:

- What means "big" (how many records are you dealing with)?

- I know this sounds silly - but are your tables properly indexed (you
don't have to index primary keys, but other columns that are used in
relations need an index)

- What exact QGIS version are you using? 2.18.x - in the about dialogue
you can find this, including the exact github version string

- if we can't help you further, it may help to see your create table
statements (including all indexes)

I have a (rather big) Postgres/PostGIS database that basically looks
like this: https://ibb.co/bK7PKv

I want to use QGIS for editing and inserting data.

I already found these ressources:




I tried it: I created the relations and built custom forms.

However, when I want to insert or edit something. QGIS becomes really
slow and crashes finally. But before I describe the problems in more
detail I want to read more about it. I find the documentation (linked
above) a bit too little.

So, my question:

Is there any documentation I have missed?

Is there any book (chapter) you can recommend?

Do you know of any example where QGIS is used for entering data into
many related tables in Postgres/PostGIS at once?

I am thankful for any hint or resource.
