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.
