Bug report #13754
Selected Multipolygon by Rectangle / "on the fly" reprojection = Only few entities are selected
|Affected QGIS version:||master||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||21781|
The graphical selection on multipolygons, does not recover all entities when using reprojection "on the fly".
multipolygon CRS 3857 + qgis project CRS 3857 + selection of all entities: works well
multipolygon CRS 3857 + qgis project CRS 2154 ("on the fly" reprojection) + selection of all entities: Only few entities are selected
selection by polygon: use 40 instead of 4 points for selection rectangle for more accurate transformation (fixes #13754)
#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 4 years ago
- Category changed from Map Tools to Map Canvas
- Priority changed from Normal to Severe/Regression
- Target version set to Future Release - High Priority
- Affected QGIS version changed from 2.12.0 to master
This worked as expected until 2.8.3
Actually in 2.8.3 if selecting outside the boundaries of a certain layer CRS QGIS shown this message
CRS Exception: Selection extends beyond layer's coordinate system
that is not anymore the case in qgis > 2.8.3

If you zoom in enough selection seems to work, but not if you zoom out enough.
It only worked when the projections were somewhat alike. The four points of a rectangle around the extent of the layer in EPSG:2154 were transformed to a polygon in EPSG:3857 that excludes Arabia. 0a83f182 adds 9 points to each rectangle edge and improves it. Selection for more "stronger" projections might still "fail" and need more points (e.g. polar and non-polar).
