I have a project where I have a few layers (State of Texas, cities, roads, etc.). They are all resaved and projected to NAD83 / UTM zone 14N EPSG: 26914. The project CRS is also NAD83 / UTM zone 14N EPSG: 26914 and on the fly projection is enabled. I added a text delimited file and cannot get them to line up. I checked the attribute table of the delimited file and the coordinates are correct. I cross-checked this with a point close to where a few of the points from the delimited file are and they are very close so in theory they should be lining up. I tried to save the delimited file and save it with the same projection and add the shp file back in and that did not work. Anyone have any ideas? I can't think of anything else to try.
To know which layers are "right", or "wrong", change the project CRS to EPSG:3857, and add a Satellite or Openstreetmap layer.
There is a difference between
How large is the offset? It could be that your data is initially
Figured out the problem.
Under properties, I had "Use project CRS" checked rather than "Prompt for CRS" when creating a new layer (http://i.imgur.com/wT0cGlR.png). So whenever I would upload the delimited file, it would automatically project to EPSG: 26914 rather than WGS84 / EPSG: 4326 that it should have been uploading in. So whenever I would change the Project CRS to WGS84 it would upload correctly because then it was giving the incoming layer the correct projection.
Thanks for everyone's help!
