Is there an easy way to get the BBOX of the currently selected vector features in QGIS?

I've seen How to quickly calculate bounding box coordinates of a selected polygon with QGIS but it does not solve the problem if multiple features are selected.

I'm asking if QGIS has an out-of-the-box feature to do this. I don't want to use the Python console, and I don't want to create a new layer just to get this information.

If it is not possible I'll just open a feature request.

  • Can you clarify are you after the BBOX as per the title, or is that part of the metadata you want? If it's more than BBOX, how does what you want differ from the information you get from the layer > properties? – nmtoken Oct 18 '17 at 14:52

Not sure this is what you want to see...anyway,

(1) Open attribute table and add a new text field (length ~ 160) with an expression: geom_to_wkt(bounds($geometry))

(2) Click on Identify Features icon
