Feature request #10781
Print composer extents add option to auto sync to map canvas extent

Current behaviour one has to manually click set to map canvas extent, an option to sync both would be a nice addition I think
Maybe a checkbox with auto which grays out min/max values?

I totally agree. Printing out a map is not an easy task for novice users when the print composer doesn't automatically reflect the canvas.
I just finished a new plugin which will syncronize the map with composer. When it is approved I will update this issue.
Tried with 32 bit and worked, I was hoping more of a check box that each time the map canvas moved the print composer would synchronize, but this is a compromise.
I hope to get it working so that you don't have to click the toolbar button but I need to learn how to work with signals and slots.
Maybe keeping both options would be nice, keep up the good work! Thanks for the plugin
Too bad this plugin last update is 2014 and the functionality is not part of layouts. Would be interesting if Nyall could add this.
