Set Project projection to match Overlay projection

I'm playing with a dataset that has a particularly odd projection that I have never seen before. But I had to enter this project twice - once when I opened the first data set and then again in the main project configuration so that when I brought in subsequent shapefiles, it would suggest the correct projection saving me re-entering it for each file. Would it be possible to add an option/button/right-click somewhere to set the projection of the project to one of the layers? That way, if I want to flip between Geographic/UTM/this custom TM, I don't have to enter the projection values?

Thanks for considering,

    There is already an option when you right-click on a layer in the Control Center to set the view/export projection to the native projection of that layer. That should do what you are after.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
