Add a vector and set the project to "google mercator" and click "ok". QGIS crashes.

History

  • Subject changed from (Windows/osgeo4w) setting the project to "google mercator" causes QGIS to crash to (Windows) setting the project to "google mercator" causes QGIS to crash

I can replicate the issue also with the standalone version, but not with a simple project made of one or few layers. I can open a complex/big project, reproject everything in "google mercator" but when I save the project qgis crashes.

I have the same problem with qgis installed from the osgeo4w installer using the current available version. Solved the issue of QGIS crashing when switching the CRS and using OTF by downgrading the proj package in the libs category from 4.8.0.0 to 4.7.0-4

seems solved after the latest upgrades, and doesn't happen anyway in master, so I'm closing this.
