Feature request #16796
export geopdf and geotiff form print composer
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||duplicate|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||24695|
Trying to export first to a PDF from Print Composer and there is no coordinate reference system in the output.
Then tried to export to a TIF with World File option and again there's no spatial reference data in the output.
When I load the TIF into qgis, it doesn't line up correctly and then crashes with a core dump.
Might be relevant, but in the print composer, under Export Settings the Reference Map pull down menu is blank with nothing to select there.
https://gis.stackexchange.com/q/246390/1297 also has the same issue reported there.
Output from gdalinfo utility.

- Subject changed from cannot output print composer with spatial information to export geopdf and geotiff form print composer
- Tracker changed from Bug report to Feature request
The print composer never exported geopdf or geotiff. You can export as tif with world file, so this is not a bug but rather a feature request.
The " Reference Map" pull down is empty if you don't have more than 1 map object in the layout, you probably misunderstand how the "reference map" work in the context of th qgis print composer.
