comment Export all visible layers in map view window to DXF (as one)
Just by way of an asside and not to try steal the tunder here...but eporting to dxf straight from QGIS has always failed for me. You will need to use grass.

comment QGIS Shapefiles have the same CRS but dont line up. (Census Tiger Data & State Data)
Check in settings if the project crs is set to the correct one and that enable on the fly projections is checked.

comment QGIS: when using composer to save as image the image has a shift of about 50m
I think it is something to do with the CRS for the globe not readily translating onto a 2d plain for printing to scale. The globe is round and hense lines are curved whereas standard printing to scale only allows for printing in straight lines. correct me if i am wrong.

comment Where did the polygons go after projecting a map in QGIS?
Cool. I just dont get why people down vote on a suggestion. I have a bee in my bonnet about it and that is all.

comment Where did the polygons go after projecting a map in QGIS?
Ok i looked into it and deleted my previous comment as they are clearly there. what is appears that in a CRS of WGS 84 it is projected as being on a globe, hence half the world is not visible, in a CRS of WGS84 Pseudo Mercator It appears correctly. as with any other CRS, showing all landmasses.

That is a very strange reprojection. Provide the link so we can download and check it out.

comment Add new rows to a shapefile
Is it possible to join the layer with another layer. it depends on how you added your data and from what source, as if it was an original shapefile then they will all be there. however if it is a dxf that has been converted into a shapefile, it is possible that some of your polygons are incomplete and get "lost".

comment Why isn't enabling on the fly projection reflected in raster? QGIS 1.8.0
Try going to settings and project settings. perhaps the layers are being reporjected in the project crs through on the fly. So just define your layer crs in project properties.
