I would like to style polygon layer using geometry generator to create point patterns but using just generated points geometry. Is it possible? How can I achieve that?

I know that I can use just use polygon geometry and choose points pattern fill but I don't want to use that option. I'm looking for workaround to create points pattern fill which remain vector when exported. In QGIS3 is a bug which prevent standard pattern fill to be exported as vector.

I genereted some lines or points inside polygon via geometry generator and they was exported as vector. So it should work but I lack experience to create regular pattern fill in geometry generator.

  • Creating points in geometry generator may not be the most efficient way to achieve your end goal. Why not create a point grid and clip it to the polygon geometry? – csk Sep 17 '18 at 17:33

    I need exported map in full vectors for print purpose. For very long time there is a bug in QGIS which rasterize points grid on export. – Malauch Sep 18 '18 at 15:19
  • Not a point pattern fill. Use the create grid tool to create a point grid. A point grid is a separate vector layer. – csk Sep 18 '18 at 17:09
