I am using QGIS 2.18 to identify points that fall out of a specific boundary but the identify features is not working. When I right click, it brings me the polygon feature. So i turned off the polygon layer and highlighted the layer i am working with as described in QGIS identify features button issue but it is still not working. I found the identify mode in the map tools but cant seem to figure out what: "You probably want the Top down, stop at first" means. It is either it does not bring up the table at all or the identify results table is blank. I have also tried this in QGIS 3.4 and got the same results. Some points are identified while some are not.
