Feature request #6445

Updated by Harrissou Santanna over 1 year ago

From the documentation (I've inserted the (a) and (b):



> (a) Intersect: Overlay layers such that output contains areas where both layers intersect.

(b) Clip: Overlay layers such that output contains areas that intersect the clip layer.



When I read these descriptions I think that (b) is saying the output layer will contain all the features from the input layer which intersect the clip layer, and (a) is saying the output layer will be trimmed by the intersect layer, i.e. it will contain all the same features as the output from (b), but they will be trimmed.



1. Isn't this the wrong way round? Shouldn't (a) be called "clip" (or "trim"), and (b) be called "intersect"?

2. Why do I get the same results (trimmed) using both tools? (testing on Windows with both polyline and polygon input layers)

Or do I misunderstand something?
