I recently discovered the wonders of the OpenStreetMap maps, however now all my projects have all gone curved.

Is there a way to go back to how they were set originally.

Opposite to this question:

How to reproject base layers in OpenLayers?

So basically how to reproject base layers once OpenLayers layers are removed.


Not sure if I understand you correctly. You have made your own projects in some projection. After adding OSM via openlayers plugin your project CRS has automatically changed to EPSG:3857. If you remove the openlayers layer, you can switch back to any other CRS.

If your data is in a projected CRS, you can rightclick on the layer -> Layer-CRS for project

If your data is lat/lon degrees, you might better choose a projected CRS, e.g. the UTM CRS for your part of the world.

There is no need to reproject the data, QGIS can display it in any CRS you want.
