Feature request #10450
single symbol layers should not rely on a stringless child to show symbology preview

Since the early days I've been using QGIS, there's been a small irritant that I feel should be addressed. Currently, single symbol layers are eating vertical spacing to show a symbology preview in a string-less child row. It has always felt odd to me, and IMO would look much better if the symbology preview would simply replace the generic layer type (polygon, line, point) glyph in a single row.
A visual proposal is worth a thousand words:
crossing fingers real hard :)

I'm in two minds, only because you loose the geometry type information if you don't have a symbol set, but other then that I don't mind it. Not sure how hard it would be too do.

Nathan, actually, the symbology preview does a good job ( most of the time ) at indicating what geometry type the layer is ( unless you have very fat lines, line is clearly visible, etc. )
