I am using QGIS 2.18.2 on a Macbook Pro running OS X 10.10.5.
I created a layer of only 8 points from a wildlife survey. A few points have become less relevant, so I want to hide them from the display. But I would rather not delete them from the shapefile.
Is there a way to do this? Or do I have to create a new, separate layer of the relevant points?
