I am looking for a tool in the toolbox which gives me exactly the options that "Export Layer" is giving me (see screenshot) because I want to use it in a model.

For example, I want to cut the COORDINATE_PRECISION from 15 decimals to only 2 decimals.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just reformat ASCII output?

You can use "Vector General -> Save Vector Features to File" tool. In the tool window, you can set the coordinate precision using COORDINATE_PRECISION=NUMBER beneath "GDAL layer options".

not sure it is possible in a one-step scenario but u're able to test the following :

  1. selection by expression (select all with the ad-hoc expression)

  2. extract selected features

  • Ok, not bad. With that I could save to another vector format (gpkg, geojson, shp, etc.), which is already cool. But I could not define the precision in a GeoJSON which is an option in the layer export dialogue. Nov 28 '21 at 15:44
