Bug report #8956
Buffers tool does not correctly calculate new shape if "use only selected features" not selected
|Affected QGIS version:
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:
|Copied to github as #:
Dataset: congressional voting district data (http://www.census.gov/cgi-bin/geo/shapefilesrd13/main)
Use only selected features: not checked
Segments to approx: 5
Buffer distance to field: Some field with different values per row
Dissolve buffer results: not checked
Im trying to calculate the shape that's the viable interior of each district (exact computation at my website https://sites.google.com/site/mathagainstgerrymandering/advanced-attributes#TOC-Viable-Interior-Index).
Creating the viable interiors one by one ("use only selected feature") works like a charm, but does not create the correct shape if I try to calculate for every district at once.

Thank you for looking at this Giovanni - I just looked at it again and found the problem instantly.
The buffers layer I am creating does not have the same projection as the underlying layer. Once I created a new project, re-imported the data, and chose the appropriate projection, everything worked like a charm.

The buffers layer I am creating does not have the same projection as the underlying layer.
this sound strange anyway (I would expect the buffer to be created with the same CRS of the input), but anyway it would be a different issue.
