Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:invalid
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:18497


using qgis 2.2.0 on a windows 7 notebook

OBSERVED: "save as..." CSV generates an empty csv file.
csv file only contains the column header.

EXPECTED: "save as..." genereates a csv file with lat lon coordinates.

- using a kml or shp file for export (kml attached)
- save as csv works in previous version (2.0.1)

I think something is happening, I tried it myself and I can get points to work but not lines and polygons no matter what settings I change

The tools works fine.

If the input file is a point layer, then there are no difficulties.

If the input file is a line or polygon layer then the geometry needs to be exported as WKT: in QGIS 2.2 there is this option.

It has no sense exporting a line/polygon geometry as "X/Y".

When the user choosen not to export the geometry then only the attributes are exported, and this is what happens also with the provided kml.
