So I have a vector layer of polygons in WGS 84 lat/long (i.e. using the automatic projection for lat/long and WGS84 datum). I want to change that to WGS84 UTM 23S in QGIS. I tried doing like online tutorials show (right-click layer, "save as", and choose the CRS you want) but there has been zero distortions to the polygons, even for very big ones comprising tens of kilometers. In other words, it didn't work. Can anybody help? I'm using QGIS 2.8.2.
Somebody please help. It's suppose to be simple, but I can't get my head around this zero distortion problem. Anyone?
