Description

new description:

with the new dynamic legend, it is impossible to predict how long the legend will be, so the idea is to have the legend on the same page of the main map when it fits in, but adding a new page and moving the legend there when it is too long; the same would apply to the table of attributes.

old description:
Hi,

I noticed that the print function in lizmap has improved a lot, but always generates two-page pdf even when the legend is very short (only one layer). I thought that the generation of the second page should be done only when the legend does not fall within given space (perhaps imposed by the design side qgis).

by thanks
Andrea

Actually it's a print layout one: LizMap uses the print layout from the project.

so the issue is that the composer always produce a 2 page print/pdf when it includes a legend, even if it configured to be a 1 page layout? The subject and description of this ticket does not help understand the issue and how try replicate it. Thanks.
