I am trying to use the XYtools plugin for QGIS (because copy-paste is not working with just one of my files?!), and I'm concerned that I actually just need to update my Python but not sure if doing so would disrupt anything. I've read all the posts on
install python xlw and xlrd libraries
errors, but most instructions seem to be for PC or assume Python version >= 2.7.
I installed QGIS about 4 months ago on a brand new machine running Yosimite, using the
QGIS 2.12 built for Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite and El Capitan. Built with Qt Cocoa 4.8. The only
Python I can find on my machine is version 2.6.
*update: In the meantime, I installed the Quick Export plugin and this gives me (almost) what I need. The strange thing is, even this appears to leave out several (seemingly) random entries in the table. I'm not entirely positive there isn't a problem with the project, as I have no problem copy-pasting from other projects. In any case, the question still stands (potentially for other plugins).
