Hello list

I have user with a project with a number of layers (both shapefile and
PostGIS). Project CRS is EPSG:27700 and layer CRS is EPSG:27700 (British
National Grid).  Normally, the mouse position box in the bottom panel
shows coordinates in metres (easting and northing) but for some reason
it is now displaying lon and lat instead.  Has the user added a layer
with CRS EPSG:4326 which QGIS has then reprojected on the fly to
EPSG:27700? Possibly.  But why has the mouse display box switched to
lon/lat?  Is there any way to get that back to easting/northing metres?
Am I missing something obvious?

The user has a number of points with coordinates in metres and wants to
move them to the correct location but can’t as the project is working in
decimal degrees.

Windows 7 64bit, QGIS 2.14.3 64bit, Postgresql 9.2, PostGIS 2.2

Thanks in advance
