It's possible to add output from a WMS to a Project via a WMS Overlay. This requires defining a connection to the WMS as a Project Source, and then referencing that WMS's Project Source with the WMS Overlay.

Editor → Current Situation (Ribbon tab) → Overlays (Ribbon bar) → The WMS Overlay (Left panel)

How to connect a WMS to a WMS Overlay:

  1. If it does not yet exist, add a WMS Overlay to the Project.
  2. In the left panel, select the intended WMS Overlay.
  3. In the right panel, find the entry "Source", and click on "Select". The Source Selection window will open.
  4. If the desired WMS does not yet have a defined Project Source, click on "Add Sources" to create a new Project Source in a new window.
  5. In the Source Selection window, select the Project Source which relates to the intended WMS, and click on "OK". The Source Selection window will close.
  6. In the right panel, find the entry "Layer Id", and click on "Select". Use the popup to select the layer which needs to be used by this WMS Overlay.
  7. Select the intended Result Type. This can be any of the RGBA bands, or the color dictated by their combination.
