In my opinion, tristate checkboxes have the advantage that it is still
possible to enable/disable a property for all layer files in one go, even if
there are several layer files in one layer.
On the other hand they may cause more confusion to users.
Thus I would favor tristate for visibility (important to toggle for all layer
files) and disabling for editing and attribute table if there are several
layer files. I cannot imagine a use case where I want to toggle editing or
attr. table for more than one layer file at once.
> Also it would be good to decide whether to use checkboxes / toggle
> toolbar buttons or start+stop buttons for these actions for layers
For me, checkboxes/toggle are more intuitive.
