Description

When clipping a raster, when I select GeoTIFF for export, the "gdal_translate" command includes "-of XYZ" which exports an ASCII grid file instead.
It doesn't appear to matter what export format you select, "-of XYZ" is added in every circumstance.

I can override it, but clearly it's not the desired behaviour.

Does the equivalent tool in the Processing toolbox work as expected?
gdal_tools is unsupported and and all its tools ported also to the Processing toolbox.

Hi Giovanni,
the gdal_tools "clipper" function is still in the raster menu by default, is it not? So it's not clear to the user that it is not supported, or that there is a better tool available. The equivalent tool in the processing toolbox works fine.

This bug doesn't seem to exist in 2.18.7 on Linux or Windows ports. I get the correct "-of GTiff" in the gdal_translate command on both platforms.

it is there, it was left on purpose while migrating everything in the Processing toolbox. In QGIS 3 the tools we once called "gdal tools" are already gone. GDAL tools as it still exists in QGIS 2.18.* will not get any bug fix.
