I would like to save my attributes selection as a layer. I have read on other posts to do it by selecting the layer with the attribute selection, then right clicking on it and choosing "save selection as...". However, by right clicking on the layer with selected attributes, there is no "save selection as..." in my case.

How can I save/export the attribute selection as a new file?


You are doing fine, but just need to go to next step.

enter image description here

Tick on Save only selected features.

  • I get "Creation of layer failed (OGR error: Attempt to create csv layer (file) against a non-directory datasource.)" The features are from a PostGIS database. – Chris Anderson Aug 29 '18 at 21:10
