Description

In the tool provided in Raster/Extraction/Contour, values of contour lines are not exported by default. The user must check the option "Attribute name". I think it's indispensable to export the values and I cannot see why the check-box is not checked by default!
Also, the text besides says "If not provided, no elevation attribute is attached." . This tool is not only used to create contour lines from elevation data, I think the text should be more generic like: "If not provided, no attribute field containing the values is created."
(But if the option is checked by default, maybe the text is no longer needed...)
