Bug report #18166
QGIS virtual field calculations fail for selected features
|Affected QGIS version:||2.18.16||Regression?:||No|

I have tried using the virtual field option in Field calculator.
On the top of the Field calculator window it says "Only update 2143 selected features", however, this feature doesn't work as expected, but the given value will be given to all features, including those that were not selected.
I am using data from PostGIS.

- Resolution set to invalid
- Status changed from Open to Closed
Virtual fields can't be applied only to selections - They are a brand new field, present for every feature in the layer (and for any newly added features too).
