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.

#3 Updated by Ed B over 9 years ago

I just finished a new plugin which will syncronize the map with composer. When it is approved I will update this issue.

#4 Updated by Ed B over 9 years ago

The plugin is finished but it is experimental and it only works on 64 bit version


#5 Updated by Antonio Locandro over 9 years ago

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.

#7 Updated by Antonio Locandro over 9 years ago

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.
