Description

Many maps have a space between the graticule frame and the map. It would be really useful to have this as a configurable option in QGIS Composer.

If there is a gap, it would be nice to then have more options for labelling - outside the frame, inside the map, inside the frame etc.

In my case I am trying to emulate South African topographic maps, example attached or full image at http://i.imgur.com/UmIUPVA.jpg
