- Subject changed from map scale not shown correctly to Decoration -> Scale Bar uses a misleading planimetric measurement
Currently, the scale bar always show planimetric distance. Especially when working in EPSG:4326 and the scale bar is displayed in metres (see also #14185), users may assume the measurement is ellipsoidal, what is not true.
