I have line elements and polgone-elements on two different layers (lets say layer A (line) and layer B (polygons). Now I want to remove all elements of layer A that crosses/touches/laying in polygones of layer B.

I tried the "difference"-function but this function only removes the part of the line laying in the polygon (and I want to remove the whole line).
