I understand how to merge two vector shapefiles together but I don't know how to layer one layer on top of another one and export it to make it permanent?
I would like to add the GreaterMan shapefile on top of the GreatBritain shapefile to highlight the location of GreaterManchester (as shown in the attached picture).
I know this is a quick fix but I can't work out how to do this.
I have merged the two shapefiles together using the union tool so that only the Greater Manchester in the attribute table is displayed and I have run a simple select features using an expression "DISCRIPTIO" LIKE 'Metropolitan District' to highlight all of the Greater Manchester districts.
The purpose is to export the shapefile, so I can import the shapefile in Inkscape.
