Description

Text (and other types of) annotations are not rendered when saving the map canvas as an image through QGIS' Project -> Save as Image... menu item.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new project
2. Add a dataset layer (doesn't really matter what you use here)
3. Add a Text Annotation on the canvas
4. Save the canvas as an image via the Project -> Save as Image... menu item
5. Open the saved image, notice the absence of the text annotation

Flagging as blocker, it's a real bummer.

History

#1 Updated by Nathan Woodrow about 5 years ago

Is this a regression or more of a nice to have if it works?

#2 Updated by Mathieu Pellerin - nIRV about 5 years ago

Nathan, my memory remembers a time when I could Save as Image... with annotation drawn, but then again I could be wrong. I was discussing this with Martin, it might have regressed after the MTR mega-commit.

I will try to test this out on QGIS 2.0 or 2.2 to confirm it is indeed a regression and my memory's still somewhat trustworthy ;).

Maybe you have just gone mad ;)

Nah I might be a regression from the multi threading stuff. Should be easy enough to fix if it was.

  • Priority changed from Severe/Regression to Normal

I tested qgis down to 1.8 and it never exported the annotation with "save as image". Not even sure we should make this a feature request or not.
