I'm using QGIS 2.18.12 and have this problem:

When I copy objects and paste them into a new layer, I get the message CRS undefined. (I'm using EPSG:28992, Amersfoort/RD New as CRS). In the long term release 2.14 version, I get the same message, but I get a window to change the CRS. In the 2.18.12 version, there is no window to change the CRS, actually, and this is pretty annoying, QGIS stops the whole action. In short, I can't paste objects anymore into new layers.

What's wrong?


Go to QGIS / Preferences / CRS:

You have to select Prompt for CRS, maybe you have set Use a default CRS: EPSG:28992, Amersfoort/RD.

  • Thank you but this solves the problem with the CRS, but then still nothing happens. In 2.14.16 I get a window for CRS and then I get the window for saving the New vector layer. In 2.18.12 I have the same window for CRS but then nothing, there is no window for saving the new vector layer. – Bouwe Sep 15 '17 at 19:14
