Using Qgis both 1.8.0 and 1.7.4, the slider does not show up after selecting features and click "simplify feature" botton.

Any special setting needed to show the slider?

The process for using the 'simplify features' button is to click the 'simplify features' button then click the feature you want to simplify.

See the bottom of page 69 in the 1.7 user guide

EDIT: Actually the user guide for that section is a bit confusing and probably the source of the problem.

I tried that way but it did not work. So I opened another project and it worked. I think the first file is corrupted somehow. Thank you for the answer and sorry for confusion. – Reiko Aug 12 '12 at 1:30
