I have an attribute table with a vast amount of data in QGIS. I need to export only some of the features. Is there any way to select features without opening the attributes table?


Sure, here some options:

Use the processing toolbox and one of these tools:

  • Select by Expression
  • Select by Attribute
  • Select by Location

Or directly extract them via processing tools:

  • Extract by Expression
  • Extract by Attribute
  • Extract by Location

You can find all of them within "Vector Selection":

Or do it by a manual selection via the selection toolbar:
