Suppose I have layers A and B. I don't know their projections but by the looks of the map I know they are not the same.
In QGIS 1.6 I would use one of my favorite features:
Vector> Data Management Tools> Export to New Projection
What was nice about that feature is that you could export B to A's projection by selecting "choose projection from existing layer". Hence you need not know A or B's projection.
In QGIS 1.7 the
Data management Tools menu is much reduced and the
Export to New Projection is missing.
Yes, I can do projections on the fly, and I can do
save as. The former is not useful if I want to convert B's projection to A's. The latter does not give option to set projection from open layer.
I have tried to find different ways to access the
Export to New Projection dialog without success. Any tips?
