I would like to select all lines within a polygon. I tried to do that with the clip-function, but it didn't work out (the resulting layer was empty). Do I have to select a particular setting before using that function or why isn't it working?

  • Welcome to GIS:SE @leni! You could try using the Select by location tool and choose intersects as the Geometric predicate :) – Joseph Sep 22 '17 at 11:26

    Hey Joseph, thanks for your answer! At first this didn't work either, but then I changed the coordinate system to WGS84. Now the "clip" function as well as "salect by location" work – leni Sep 22 '17 at 12:15

    Most welcome! Yes, you need to make sure the Coordinate Reference System (CRS) for both layers are the same in order to get the most accurate results =) – Joseph Sep 22 '17 at 12:28
