The scale bar has alignment problems. If one chooses "left", "centered" or "right, it is always left.
If the zoom of the map is changed, the scale bar does not stay in place. It must always reposition it afterwards, which is a real waste of time.
The alignment should be centered on the bar rather than the values ​​and there is the possibility of writing the type of units below the middle.
It would be very appreciated that regardless of the zoom chosen for the map that the scale bar always remains in the same place, well centered.

This is possible - set the item's reference point to middle or right instead. The scale bar alignment option only applies to text based scale bars and controls text alignment (this has been clarified in 3.0).
