First time using QGIS modeler so i'm not familiar with it.
I want to select features from multiple layers (how many layers and what layers changes depending on the work) merge them into 1 layer (attribute only) then export to a spreadsheet.
I know i can select the features then right click each layer and save selected features as, then merge the resulting spreadsheets but that is slow and cumbersome. i also know i can run extract selected features in a batch process then run merge vector layers and output the result as a spreadsheet but that is also slow and cumbersome.
I'm looking at running the extract selected features in model builder with merge vector layers, the issue i'm facing is that I can't set extract selected features to allow for multiple inputs. If i run the model as a batch process each layer gets extract selected features run on it then each selection form each layer get merge vector layers run on it resulting in individual layers instead of 1 combined layer.
What is the best way to go about this? I tried setting the input for Extract selected features to a pre-calculated value of @map_layers but it errors out when running. I also tried the Multiple input but the Extract selected features doesn't recognize it as a valid input.
