Bug report #2160
"on the fly" reprojection distorts calculated polygon area
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Windows||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||wontfix|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Copied to github as #:||12220|
Even though the queried layer and project projections were the same (EPGS 2894),
QGIS consistently reported a calculated area that was 1/10th of the actual area
if automatic reprojection was enabled (so that other layers were drawn correctly).

- Resolution set to wontfix
- Status changed from Open to Closed
if you are using 1.0.2, please update to 1.3 (or trunk) as there were major bug fixes in the projection/measurement section since the version you are using.
If even with 1.3/trunk you will experience problems than please post a sample of your data in order to make further tests.
