When I load my basemap, I can change its CRS easy. When I load a vector file (any CRS) It loads on my basemap even when I change the CRS of the basemap. However, when I load a delimited text layer on my basemap (for my example the delimited text layer was of a ED50 30 N CRS) to a basemap it doesnt show up (even if my basemap is in the same CRS as the delimited text file). I tried to change this by exporting the file and saving its CRS as wgs 84 ESRI Shapefile (same as the basemap) when it re-loads (firslty it doesnt show on the map) and when I click 'zoom to layer' my basemap locks in place and I have to shut the programme down to stop it. Additionaly if i 'Zoom to layer' of the orginal shapefile before I tried to export it as a the CRS to match my basemap, it makes the basemap completely disappear and my Scale will not change from '0:1'. is this a bug?
