I have a shapefile that show this description under Geometry type of the features in this layer:

Point (WKB type: "PointZ")

I need to use is it in some plugins that seems to work only with points:

Point (WKB type: "Point")

I know how to access the Z value, z($geometry ), but how can I convert the geometry type?

Simple, but not obvious. When I choose save as, in the new window I have to foce the geometry to point and unclick the include z-dimension.
