IN the map composer, the amount of space for legend items with symbols is related to the size of the symbol. This makes for ugly legends since the text spacing is irregular. For examples see the question on gis.stackexchange.com:


The solution there was to add an invisible symbol of the maximum size to every symbolisation, so the legend composer reserved the same amount of vertical space for each category. But an automatic (optional) solution would be ideal!

This is already possible - set the symbol height through the composer legend properties, symbol setting, symbol height. Make sure it's at least as large as the tallest symbol in your legend and QGIS will evenly space the items to match.
