Composer in QGIS Master does not update the paper size when opening a saved template.

To reproduce:

1. Create a new print composer (A4 by default);
2. Open a saved template with different format (A3, A2, ...);
3. The paper size remains at A4.

Tested both on Windows and Linux.

Probably related at some level to #11292

are you able to confirm the steps
you do to make the new composition from a template? Specifically, are
you creating a blank composition and using the "Add items from
template" command, or using the composer manager to create new
composition based off a template?

Hi Nyall,

The first one. I make "New print composer" and then "Add items from template".

I tested right now with QGIS 2.5.0-86 on windows and the result is in the image attached.

Ok, this is not a bug, but a change in functioning in version 2.6. Yet, I think icons do not seem very explicit. "New from template" icon is the same of "New composer". And "Add items from template" has the same icon that in previous versions were used to "Open" previously saved templates. So, it seems to me that should change the icons in any way.

  • Resolution set to invalid

Closing, as it's new intended behaviour. We'll tackle the icon discussion via the UI list.
