comment Which co-ordinate reference system should I use for the British Isles?
Depends what you are trying to do and what system you are using. In my job i deal with ROI, NI and GB. I use Irish Grid for the island of Ireland and OSGB for England, Scotland and Wales. In most the likes of QGIS, it allows for the reprojection of the layer to match the project CRS.

comment some shp to dxf converted lines don't show in Autocad
What is your shapefiles? Are they polygons or line. Is this shot from CAD or from QGIS. I tend to use Grass for conversions of this kind.

is this not a use for Spatial Query. Whereby you want to query what polygons fall within another polygon.

comment Discrepancy between DXF and Shapefile Polygons
Should "On the Fly Re projections" not allow it to be the same. That being said, the points as per coordinates are the same in AutoCAD and QGIS.

comment Discrepancy between DXF and Shapefile Polygons
Kind of did think about that but as far as i am aware the two CRS should be the same. I will double check.

comment Is there a way to use old Print composer templates in 2.0?
Running 2.0.1 from 1.8. Will download 2.4. It never actually gives a log. It just stops responding then crashes. oh and when it did work, the boxes were blackened out.

comment Lat Long to Useable values in QGIS
Any of my previous attemps landed the points in the middle of the sea or in england somewhere. I was given the data literally on a scrap of paper, supposedly recorded by the digger driver via a total station.
