I have 2 overlaping shapefiles. Is there any way, where I can select polygons from the 1st shapefile and trim everything that overlaps with them, in the 2nd shapefile?

I am using QGIS.


Hello Ntelo,

in your case

Vector > Geoprocessing Tools > Difference

will work nicely.

More additional information could be found here.
