I've dug through lots of docs and this blog, but I'm confounded. I go to Layer Properties, but there's no Variables section. What am I missing?

You opened Raster Layer Properties and "Variable" tab doesn't exist for raster layers. You should open a vector layer properties.

  • This is what I was missing, I'm new to qgis and did not see this in the docs anywhere. Thanks!
