Export areas based on being inside area in second layer

GavinGavin Global Mapper UserPosts: 6
i am hoping you can help.
i have 2 layers, one layer is a grid.
i am trying to export a set of shapefiles where the primary layer has any values inside the squares of my grid layer.
i can split the grid layer but can't seem to tie the two together.
is this possible?
thanks for any help.

    Hello,
    1. Select the features in your grid layer
    2. Export your other layer as Shapefile
    3. On the Tiling tab of the Export options, under Tile Layout, select "Use Selected Area Feature(s) for Tiles"
    Cheers,
    Bob

    Hi Bob

    the problem with this is i have to manually select each grid feature. i have several thousand.
    otherwise, the results were exactly what i was looking for.

    Hello,

    You don't have to manually select each feature. In the Control Center, right-click on your grid layer and choose "SELECT - Select all Features in Selected Layers with the Digitizer tool" from the menu.

    Cheers,
