Feature request #10547
Print composer frame & annotation issues
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
When labeling a map frame, you need to enable a grid, whether or not a grid is desired. To get a frame labeled with coordinates & no grid, the grid size must be set to zero, which is counter intuitive. The user should be able to enable grids and labels separately, and grids should be able to be a finer resolutions than labels - eg 1 degree labels & 1/2 degree grid. In such cases the grid should align with a zebra frame, with a label at every second grid.
The frame style is currently either zebra or none, it should support a solid line for the frame as well.
The grid should be able to be set to frame ticks only where a simple frame is used (they are implicit in a zebra frame), optionally internal or external, with the length & line style (width) user selectable.
When the units are degrees, frame annotation should be able to be set to NESW suffixes instead of + (implied) & - (negative) ie: negative lats should be DD.ddS & longs between 0 & 180 should be E, those between -180 & 0, or 180 & 360 should be W, using a 0-180 value. labels for 0, 180 & 360 should have no suffix.
Note: Funding for implementing these enhancements may be available.
