Feature request #8479

Updated by Gavin Fleming almost 4 years ago

If you want to create a new layer based on a selection, it is impossible if the selection was spatial as there is no visible SQL artefact describing the selection.

Like the ESRI 'create layer from selection', or the QGIS 'spatial query' plugin, it would be great to right-click on a layer and do this, the result being a new layer (NOT a new 'save as' dataset) filtered by the same query that resulted in the current layer's selection, whether it was done with SQL or was a graphical query, the result of a spatial overlay, or any operation resulting in a selection.
