Working in QGIS for the first time and I currently have a map that has all my points and polygons in the correct places. However, my polygons are projected in EPSG:3726 and my points are currently projected in EPSG: 4269.
Where I am running into an issue is that 4269 works in degrees not meters so I can't build buffers around my points without issues. When I change the projection of my points to match the projection of my polygon the points move WAY far away from where they were and are useless. What am I doing wrong?
