Bug report #7156

Vector geometry simplification works only if project CRS matches layer CRS

Added by marisn - almost 10 years ago. Updated over 3 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:master Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:end of life
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:16214


Steps to reproduce:
  • make a shapefile in one CRS
  • digitize a line
  • change project CRS and enable OTFR
  • try to use "simplify" tool

It's not possible to select a line and start geometry simplification. Changing project CRS to match layer CRS fixes issue.
