Feature request #2506
Layers that are switched off in Layers list are not usable in a range of tools
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||fixed|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||12566|
Throughout Vector (fTools) I cannot use layers that switched off in Layers list. This is quite inconvinient, as sometime the layers are big and I just don't want to waste time looking at them, just want to do geoprocessing or whatever.
See for example: Distance matrix, Sum line length, Points in polygon, Nearest neighbour analysis, Mean coordinates, Line intersections
I've a slight recollection that this bug/enhancement was posted already, may be for a specific tool. I apologize in advance if this is the case.
