Do you know a method to export information properties (with metadata…), like I see in Vector Properties Dialog in QGIS 3.4. Presentation is great for me.

I can make copy-paste, but it's tedious and not really optimise for paste in Calc.

  • without using python?

  • With ou without python, it's not a problem. For plugins : no plugins make that in qgis 3.4

    You can export metadata as a .qmd file directly from the layer properties window.

  • Sorry, where is this export ? Export exist in metadata window, with information I type. But no export in information view, I don't see it.

As @csk suggests you can export to several data formats at the layers menu:

  • go to the desired layer
  • open contextual menu and select «Export»
  • select «save object as»
  • a dialog open and you can select the format to export, like ODS, XSLX and CSV.

Thanks @csk :-)

  • it's not for export data but layer information and metadata.
