Bug report #14790

Export to PDF - Legend

Added by Burghardt Scholle about 8 years ago. Updated about 5 years ago.

Category:QGIS Server
Affected QGIS version:2.14.2 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:end of life
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:22747



my System: Ubuntu 14.04, qgis-server 2.14.1 / 2.14.2

My QGIS project contains a wms layer from UMN mapserver and different shapefiles (Polygon, Line, Point). My print template contains the map and a legend for the shapefiles. If I turn on the wms layer, the export to PDF (QGIS server) does not work. I get an Apache 500-error. If I turn off the wms layer, the export to PDF works fine.
Well, if I now turn on the wms layer and remove the legend only for the shapefiles with line- and point-geometry from the print template, the export to PDF works fine also. The legend of a shapefile with polygons is always exported to PDF.
I tried different wms layer and had always the same problem with export to PDF in QGIS server.
My print template contains no legend of the WMS, so no merge of different legends between WMS and other layer takes place.

Best regards

End of life notice: QGIS 2.18 LTR


QGIS 3.4 has recently become our new Long Term Release (LTR) version. This is a major step in our history – a long term release version based on the massive updates, library upgrades and improvements that we carried out in the course of the 2.x to 3x upgrade cycle.

We strongly encourage all users who are currently using QGIS 2.18 LTR as their preferred QGIS release to migrate to QGIS 3.4. This new LTR version will receive regular bugfixes for at least one year. It also includes hundreds of new functions, usability improvements, bugfixes, and other goodies. See the relevant changelogs for a good sampling of all the new features that have gone into version 3.4

Most plugins have been either migrated or incorporated into the core QGIS code base.

We strongly discourage the continued use of QGIS 2.18 LTR as it is now officially unsupported, which means we’ll not provide any bug fix releases for it.

You should also note that we intend to close all bug tickets referring to the now obsolete LTR version. Original reporters will receive a notification of the ticket closure and are encouraged to check whether the issue persists in the new LTR, in which case they should reopen the ticket.

If you would like to better understand the QGIS release roadmap, check out our roadmap page! It outlines the schedule for upcoming releases and will help you plan your deployment of QGIS into an operational environment.

The development of QGIS 3.4 LTR has been made possible by the work of hundreds of volunteers, by the investments of companies, professionals, and administrations, and by continuous donations and financial support from many of you. We sincerely thank you all and encourage you to collaborate and support the project even more, for the long term improvement and sustainability of the QGIS project.
