Hello everybody,

I come back to you

I went to georezo and they confirmed that there is a bug!

First sorry for my english, it's a little bad. I'll try to explain my problem in english but i put a french explanation under the english version!^^

I use QGIS mac before 2.6 and the problem was there. Now, i install the version 2.8 to see if the problem was resolved on this version but the problem is always there!
When i make a print composer, i have a problem with the map:
I crate a new map, ok i seen it. I add grid and ok no problem, it post up it. But when i want to add a framework (inside, outside, zebra,...) there is a problem and it doesn't make it. It's the same when i ask to add coordinates (around the picture, the position of each grid).
But when i export my project to PDF, i see the project correctly?! :/

My teacher, which use all the time QGIS, look for but he never see that. He asked to a another guy which is really "strong" in QGIS and he didn't know too.

Finaly, Santanna said: "I confirm that the problem is only on Mac OS X. There is no problem on Windows. He add that there is no problem with the version Mac OS X 2.4."

I joint you some picture to show you the problem:

A capture to show you what i see.

When I export to PDF

Thanks for you answer.




Je reviens vers vous: je suis allé sur le site géorézo et on me confirme qu'il y a bien un bug:

J'utilise QGIS mac précédemment la version 2.6.1 et le bug était présent. Je viens de passer à la version 2.8.1 pour voir si le bug avait été réparé mais il persiste toujours.

lorsque je réalise une composition, j'ai un problème avec la carte.
En effet, je vais dans gaticule et j'ajoute une grille. ok pas de problème, il l'affiche. Mais, lorsque je veux mettre un cadre, il ne l'affiche pas (à l'intérieur, à l'extérieure, en zébré,...).
Il en va de même pour l'affichage des coordonnées qu'il ne veut pas mettre.
mais, lorsque j'exporte le projet sous forme PDF, il me l'affiche correctement! :/

Mon prof, qui utilise très souvent QGIS donc il s'y connais quand même, à regardé et il a dit qu'il n'avait jamais vu ça. Il a également demandé à un collège qui est "calé" quand à l'utilisation de QGIS et il ne sait pas non plus.

Finalement, Santana me dis: "je confirme le bug sous MacOS X. Avec ces paramètres, ça apparait nickel sous Windows mais pas de cadre zébré ni de coordonnées sous OS X."

Quelques photo pour vous illustrer le problème:

Merci d'avance pour votre réponse.

Giovanni, I read that an issue is tagged as blocker if the feature has ever worked in a previous release. In Os X QGIS2.4, the frame style (only zebra was available though) was displayed as expected and so were the coordinates.
If none of these options worked with 2.8, shouldn't it be tagged "Blocker"?

#6 Updated by Rhenriques Henriques almost 6 years ago


I also agree that this bug should be considered as blocker. It's very annoying to go to another software to be able to produce a simple coordinate grid. This was working fine under version 2.4.

#7 Updated by Nyall Dawson almost 6 years ago

Unfortunately I don't think this is something we're able to fix within QGIS itself - it seems to be a quirk with the Qt libraries and current versions of OSX. Feedback from an experienced OSX Qt developer would be appreciated...

So now i install the next version QGIS 2-8-2 and it don't work again! :/

the eventual fix is available in qgis master (the future 2.10) not 2.8.2.
