Creating random points across a shapefile

by Baikal   Last Updated January 14, 2018 06:22 AM

I have a shapefile composed of multiple polygons(As Fig.1). I would like to sprinkle a specified number of random points throughout the whole shapefile not in each polygon of the class´╝łas Fig.2 and Fig.2 is obtained using the parameters setting in Fig.3). I could only get 'create random points' to place a specified number of points in each poly gon of the shapefile, resulting in way too many points. Does anyone have a solution?
