I'm trying to generate random points at a specific density within a polygon layer. The polygon layer has 1850 features and I'm looking to have random points within each feature at 1/meter. Going through Vector -> Research tool -> Random points -> "Use this density of points" = 1 (assuming the default is based on unit of the project) -> Save As: .shp -> click OK. The OK button darkens, then lightens to normal without producing any result.
I've also tried going through the Processing Toolbox -> QGIS geoalgo -> Vect Creation Tools -> Random points inside polygons (fixed), set density = 1, and get error:
"Algorithm Random points inside polygons (fixed) starting...
float division by zero See log for more details"
Any ideas? I think it has something to do with the density parameter, but I haven't found what the unit used for the density is. Insight welcomed.
