Description

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.

History

This is true also under linux.

Moreover there are many other tools of the "vector" toolbox that do allow the use non active layers in the legend, for example the "Buffer" tool.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

As of 24ba0309 (SVN r13038) all fTools functions should display all layers in the layer list (including non-visible layers).
