This question already has an answer here:
Using QGIS 2.16.3, I have uploaded a point dataset. Using the attribute table, I have made a selection of several points, and would like to create a new point layer containing only the selected points. I have consulted:
How to create a new layer from a selection in QGIS?
Problematically, my menu selection is somewhat different form the one here, and I can not choose 'Save selection as'. Is there any other way to choose the selection?
