Has anyone found a way around this?
I am having issues when importing shp files into Google Earth. I need reasonably accurate measurement data and my measurements change significantly when imported from EPSG 3857 to Google earth (EPSG 4326). I comprehend the difference between the two but am having issues overcoming the problem since my layers have to be based upon locations as projected in the google openlayers plugin, which, to my knowledge, requires EPSG 3857 to be used. Converting the shp file layer projection to EPSG 4326 when saving as a kml has not worked. Neither has changing the layer or project projection in a new project without adding the google openlayers base map.
Alternatively, if there is a time efficient way to set kilometer points along a >500km line in Google Earth without using QGIS I have open ears.
