Please, can you add an option to show only the active feature of the coverage layer?

Good morning Loïc,

since QGis 2.2 you can do such a thing using rules to draw only current atlas feature :


You only have to define the symbology for your layer and ask QGis to apply it only to the current atlas feature with the rule $id=$atlasfeatureid

  • Resolution set to fixed/implemented
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

As mentioned by Mathieu - this is currently possible.

Indeed, we can do whatever we want with symbology.

But I thought it might be directly in control of the atlas without changing the symbology.
