Bug report #17671

Processing: use selected only for vector layer inputs

In processing, when one uses "Feature source" as input, there is a checkbox to restrict processing to use selected features only.

When using "Vector layer" as an input, this checkbox is missing.

It is a regression, since in the older QGIS version, this version was available as a global option (through Options --> Processing settings). Now this option is gone.

Not sure if this is a Processing/GUI or Processing/core issue or both?
