Feature request #1505

Column wrapping in Composer Legend

The ability to force long legend lists to wrap based on the vertical dimension of the legend box would be a nice feature. For instance, a vector categorized by Unique ID with many id's generates a very large legend along the vertical axis. Being able to have the legend wrap to multiple columns based on a desired vertical dimension would vastly improve the legend capabilities in the composer. A workaround is to stack legends and customize the items that are in any given legend, but this is cumbersome.

The multiple legend solution is workable, but it would be nice for legend items to automatically wrapped based on the dimension of the legend item.

+1 for this feature also. Along with the ability to have legend item text on multiple lines this would vastly improve the legend making facilities.
