- Saving selected features in QGIS? 1 answer
I am using qgis 2.6 for the first time. As I was using 2.2 previously, it was easy for me to create a new vector layer from a part of the current layer with the help of option "save selection as a new vector layer" from Layer menu. But I don't seem to find this in qgis 2.6.
