I have a layer of polygons and a layer of vector lines. I want to delete any poly that is touched/crossed/intersects a vector line. Is this possible?

I have tried the Geoprocessing Tools. Looks like I want 'Difference' but the best I can do is delete segments of lines that touch polys. I want the opposite.


You can easily achieve this using the spatial query plugin.

First you select all polygon features that intersect the lines layer. Then you can delete the selection
