Feature request #11929
Show feature selection into Composer
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||wontfix|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||20138|
I don't know why, but i can't reproduce this (http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/95498/how-to-bring-feature-selection-into-printing-composer) with QGis 2.4 and 2.6
It's very useful with QGis 2.2.
Can it be integrated as an option ?

The map selection (not the identify highlighting as described in that stackexchange post) did show in the composer until qgis 2.2. I'm not sure why after it stopped. Maybe is a bug but personally I don't think it is the right way anyway to bring in the composer highlighted features, that should be done using vector symbology.

Showing a selection in composer was a bug which was fixed for 2.4 - which is why that stackexchange method no longer works.
If you really want to show selections in composer outputs you can use the "isselected" function from the expressions+ plugin, and style your symbology to change the actual rendering of features based on whether they are selected or not. That method works well with composer.

Nyall, Giovanni, could you develop on why this is not a good idea to allow displaying the current selection in a composer map ? (with an option, say)
I don't have a prior opinion, ... just to understand :)
Hi Hugo, mine just a personal (not strong) opinion/preference, just that :)
