[QGIS-Developer] Run processing model on selected features only

If I run "Save selected features" before the rest of my model I also
loose the whole context of widgets and relations, because it is a new
virgin layer then with no link to the original layer configuration
(widgets, relations) - right?
Thanks for your reply,

I need to use refactor fields in a model with expressions support for relation_aggregates and represent_value (which requires information on widget configuration).

Could we introduce a very simple tooltip that explains with 1 or 2 sentences what the input implies - esp. for the "Vector layer" vs. "Feature Source" vs. "Layer field" ?
