Description

Select a multi page layout with items added here and there.
Select page two, right-click… remove page
The page is removed but without any notification, its content is moved to the first page, possibly corrupting that page layout.

When removing a page, a dialog should pop up, asking whether you want to
  1. remove also the content
  2. keep the content (they'll be out of a page bounds)
  3. move the content to a page you'd select

But it shouldn't be blindly and silently moved to another page, breaking its layout. As far as I remember (no QGIS right now to check) in 2.18 page was removed and items stayed at their place.

History

#1 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 1 year ago

  • Easy fix? changed from No to Yes
  • Affected QGIS version changed from 3.1(master) to 3.4.3

Confirmed on 3.4.3. A confirmation dialog appears, but objects are silently moved to the remaining page. Possibly changing the message in the dialog (your object will be moved to the previous page) is enough.
