Bug report #10059

Vector grid tool creates output with false CRS

Added by Andre Joost over 9 years ago. Updated over 6 years ago.

How to reproduce:

  1. Load a shapefile in WGS84
  2. Set project CRS to the local UTM zone
  3. Vector -> Research tools -> Vector grid
  4. Set extent from layer (but coordinates are in project CRS!)
  5. Save and add to canvas

The grid shape file has coordinates and extent in project CRS (UTM), but CRS of the selected layer (WGS84). This makes little sense.

Either the programm should raise an error message that layer and project CRS differ, or the grid layer CRS should be set to project CRS.
