7.4.4. Creating new layers from selected data

If a given selection has to be exported into a new layer, e.g. to share the file with business colleagues, this can be done by saving a vector layer (see section 7.3.3.): open the layers context menu by a right-click within the Map Legend > Save Selection As. Choose all the polygons in the layer commune_boundary_FR.shp that intersect with at least one of the honey bee locations with a selection tool of your choice and load the new created layer into the QGIS project (Fig. 86.).

The newly created polygon layer will only contain 11 features and will again be symbolized by a non-transparent simple fill pattern.
