I was trying to export features from multiple layers in a common region into new shapefiles after selecting them using the "Selection By Polygon" tool/button. However, the "
Selection by Polygon" tool only selects features from the top/current layer (QGIS 3/2.99 as of July 2017).
Is there a way to select features from multiple layers (e.g. all visible layers or all layers) by drawing only one polygon?
I don't want to draw the query polygon for the region several times as it is tedious and the polygons I draw could be slightly different each time.
