I am working in QGIS 2.4. I have changed the CRS of all the layers and in the project properties to
EPSG:102739 - NAD_1983_StatePlane_Texas_Central_FIPS_4203_Feet.
I am in print composer trying to create a scale bar and I can not figure out why the scale is so off. I am trying to go from feet to miles and it just creates a really long scale bar. Basically
1 mi = 5280 is what I am going for I have already checked each layer and they are all in state plane 4203. I am not sure what I am missing. I checked other threads about scale in QGIS and I am still at a loss. I have tried flipping the conversion around and its still not working.
Edit 2: Sounds crazy is there a difference between Qgis for Windows and for Linux. I loaded the exact same data(just copied and pasted the file with the map and data) to a windows computer. Opened it and everything works fine.
Edit: The answer given How to get correct scale values? does not address my issues. I have already done everything in that answer. All of my layers have been resaved with projection and the project projection has been changed.
