Feature request #10348
Let geoprocessing reproject layers before running an analysis

I am trying to intersect points from my postgis table planet_osm_point (ESPG:3857) and boundaries from a shapefile (ESPG:4326), but my resultant shapefile is empty.
If I save the planet_osm_point layer as a shapefile with ESPG:4326, the intersect operation works as expected. Similiar behavior with "Select by location".

For a newbie like me, it would seem natural that the analysis should work because the projections have been set correctly and everything 'looks' in order. At first I thought I was running the tools incorrectly and had to search for several tutorials before I finally figured out it must be the different projections.
I'm not sure I would call this a feature, this could potentially save a bit of time and effort if such analysis worked.
