Feature request #17011
Rename "Polygon from layer extent"
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
|Easy fix?:||Yes||Copied to github as #:||24910|
I just searched for a tool that would let me generate a bounding box polygon for each feature of my layer. I quickly disregarded the "Polygon from layer extent" tool because that name implies generating ONE polygon of the LAYER extents. Only later I discovered that it has a checkbox to calculate a polygon for each separate feature.
Please rename the tool so that it is more discoverable. Maybe "Polygon(s) from extent(s)" or something like that?

There's a separate "boundung boxes" alg which should be used instead. In 3 the checkbox will be removed from the "polygon from layer extent" alg, so that alga will ONLY create a single polygon.
