I have a large shapefile of lines, and want to run a mmqgis function (Plugins --> mmqgis --> Modify --> Convert Geometry Type.)
The problem is the file is very large and crashes the program. What options do I have?
Would running it as background python script work (and if so how do I find the commands for mmqgis function?)?
There are 460'000 features and i'm running a 3.40GHz i7 with 12GB of RAM. Is there a way of this not breaking down?
