Added by marisn - over 9 years ago. Updated over 7 years ago.

Category:Map Canvas
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Easy fix?:No Copied to github as #:19773


As #5301 has been marked as "fixed" but exported images still do not contain text annotations, it is a regression (new bug not a feature request).

Tested with QGIS 2.5.0-Master 5f11c33

Steps to reproduce - use text annotation tool to add some markings on map canvas && Project -> Save as Image

Results - text annotation is missing in the obtained image.

Expected results - text annotation is present in the obtained image.

I cannot confirm it is a regression, I tested down to qgis 1.6... maybe an even older release?

Anyway you can export tiff+world file also from the print composer, and that can 100% include text annotations, so may this can be considered really a feature request...
