When selecting a feature from census boundary file and using "save selection as" to create a new shapefile, I get the following error:
"Export to vector file failed. Error: creation of layer failed (OGR error:Failed to open Shapefile `brent.shp'. )" boundary file attached
I have re-installed QGIS 1.8 several times, but that didn't help. Also, I cannot seem to create new vector files from joins using "Save selection as..."
Has anyone found a solution to these problems?
