I am trying to extract lines to a new layer that don't fall 100% within a polygon. I want to leave out anything that does. I can not get extract by location to work in the modeler, it does work when run by itself. Is there another option or some information on how the plugin works.

enter image description here

  • What's wrong with Extract by location when you select predicate 'crosses'? This gives me all linestrings of wich less than 100% fall into the polygon. Or do you want linestrings that are totally outside the polygon too? And didn't we just discuss Select by location in gis.stackexchange.com/questions/256981/…? I thought this works in modeller when setting parent algorithm? – Jochen Schwarze Oct 5 '17 at 8:03
  • The parent algorithm isn't working for extract by location. This is a different project. It does work outside the modeler but for some reason I can't get the model to produce a result. I've added an image of the model as it currently stands. – brink Oct 6 '17 at 22:25
  • Ok, I figured it out. It is the parent algorithm but only specific ones. Why isn't there better or complete documentation on using the native plugins? It eats a lot of time having to do trial and error or waiting for an answer on stack exchange just to get something to work. – brink Oct 7 '17 at 0:36
