I am working under QGis 3.4.8 Madeira under Windows 10.

I have uploaded two layers on my project.

Layer A is a points layer. Layer B is a polygons layer.

Some points of layer A are located in the area covered by some polygons of the layer B. I want to delete these points.

My final aim is to have a layer with buffer instead of the "free-range" points with the polygons. However, I cannot delete the points overlapping with the polygons.

My question is then: How to delete SOME points of a layer depending on their overlapping with another layer ?

    You select them with the right query ... and you delete them ... – snaileater Jun 6 '19 at 14:48

A simple solution to this would be to conduct a select by location Vector->Research tools->Select by Location followed by a delete selected features (possible within the attribute table). This would remove the points that fall within the polygon. select by location Stack entry

    Also within the attribute table you can remove features from the selection. Hold down the ctrl key to unselect a single feature while leaving the other features selected. – csk Jun 6 '19 at 17:19
