Bug report #14778

Save As Vector

Added by Lene Fischer almost 8 years ago. Updated almost 8 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.14.2 Regression?:No
Operating System:Windows 64 bit Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:invalid
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:22735


When I want to 'Save As' in a vector layer, a new functionality to choose geometry is now available. As default it is set as Automatic. In the part of the dialog is also "Include z-value".
When I save a vectorfile and the "Automatic" is used the "Include z-value" is greyed out and ticked 'on'. This result in data where I get an error:"*Input layer has unsupported geometry type -2147483646*" when I want to 'Clip' or use the plugin "Clip Multiple layer"

So the 'Save As' function in the new version gives data which are "wrong".

If you select another type of geometry, uncheck the "include z-values" option and reselect 'Automatic', is the z-values option kept unchecked? And do you still get erroneous data?

When I select another type of geometry, the z-factor is still "on". I have to uncheck.
If I uncheck - the data is the OK.

Lene -
That checkbox will only default to on IF the source layer you are saving has z coordinates. Can you share your source layer?

This is railway (sealand) from the Danish geodata agency.

Lene - that source file DOES have z coordinates in the geometry. So defaulting to saving it and keeping the Z coordinate is the correct action here.
