I am attempting to generate an elevation profile in QGIS 3.2.2, with elevation in feet, and distance in miles, using Profile Tool. I have managed to convert my DEM files to feet, and the elevation of the path displays correctly in feet in the Profile Tool window. The distance continues to display in meters.
I have set my project preferences to use Miles for distance measurement, but no matter what I do, what setting I click, I cannot get the distance on the x axis to display in feet in Profile Tool.
I've also tried the qProf plugin with the same results; elevation displays in feet, distance in meters.
I feel like I'm overlooking something simple. Is there an easy way to change the distance units, either in the data, in QGIS itself, or using the Profile Tool?
