I am trying to use the advanced digitizing panel with a new line geometry layer. I am using QGIS 3.0.3
The QGIS documentation states:
"The tools are not enabled if the map view is in geographic coordinates"
But provides no information on how to set the "map view" to "geographic coordinates". When I attempt to use the advanced digitizing panel I am given a similar message, but with a bit more information "Change the coordinates system in the project". Yep, that's it, no information on how exactly to do that.
In CAD tools are not enabled for the current map tool the answer states that the panel works perfectly with "projected coordinates". I certainly believe this is true, but, once again, there is no information about HOW to switch to "projected coordinates".
BTW, I have searched the QGIS documentation, and there does not seem to be any reference to "geographic coordinate systems" or any instructions regarding them.
How do I change my project (or map view?) from "geographic coordinate system" to "projected coordinate system"?
