Feature request #11912
rotation: the composer map item should rely on the new map rotation feature
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|
Right now, the newly coded rotation feature is only useable on qgis' main canvas, meaning composer sheets can't make use of its benefits (a rotation which doesn't rotate symbology, layer, etc.).
The composer map item has a map rotation input, but it is not as efficient (as it rotates the rendered map, instead of rotating the datasets prior to symbology and labelling). The composer map item rotation feature should be updated to rely on the new map rotation code.
Newly inserted maps should also by default set its rotation value to the one currently used in the main canvas (like the item does for background color upon insertion)
Use core support for map rotation in composer
