Description

When creating a legend of proportionate circles in the map composer, the circles are drawn left justified.
It would be nice if they were centered, or if the user could at least chose to center them.
I'm attaching an image to show the problem.

I'm classifying this as a feature request but hesitated to classify it as a bug since IMHO the current solution does not make the legend usable for professional cartography.

Is this really so difficult to fix ? All circles should "just" be centered at x = diameter of largest circle / 2.

This really makes the legend look very bad...

It already works in 2.x - just make sure your legend symbol width setting is large enough to fit your largest symbol.
