Is there any way to save frequently used expressions in the selection or field calculator dialogs? Obviously I can cut and paste them into a file where I might save them, but I mean within the context of QGIS like you can do in ArcMap.


This is not possible at the moment. There is a ticket for it, and assigned to me no less :)

It was in my original plans just never got around to it.

I don't think I will have time for 2.2 but maybe 2.4.

  • That's about authoritative as it going to get :-) I looked at the ticket and it calls for a list of recently used expressions. This is good, but also the ability to explicitly save/load as in ArcMap would be nice, perhaps in addition to recently used.

  • Yeah it's in a different ticket, just didn't link it this morning.

  • If I read the ticket correctly, the request was completed years ago. However, at 2.18.3, I cannot find a way to save or load an expression. The help doesn't mention how. Can someone explain to me how to save and load expressions?
