I recently had some difficulties opening some MapInfo TAB vector layers in QGIS because each MapInfo layer contained two different geometry types: point and line. The MapInfo layers had originally been converted from AutoCAD DWGs. When opening in QGIS, only the point features appeared and not the linear features.
Is there a way for QGIS to open both geometries of a mixed-geometry layer or to convert or save them into two separate-geometry layers?
Failing either of those, is there a way to specify which geometry type should be opened (in my case, I was interested in the lines and not the points)?
