History

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 7 years ago

The grid and the its snapping options (spacing, offeset, etc.) are not enough?

Replying to [comment:1 lutra]:

The grid and the its snapping options (spacing, offeset, etc.) are not enough?

For large paper formats (A2 and up) grid is CPU-wasting and poorly usable. In my opinion having rules an custumizable handles (as in inkscape) will be a more efficient way..

I have an implementation of composer rulers in the branch https://github.com/mhugent/Quantum-GIS/tree/composer_ruler

It needs a bit of polishing, but maybe it is ready before the 2.0 feature freeze...

#8 Updated by Nathan Woodrow about 4 years ago

That looks good. Can we get it merged?

#9 Updated by Marco Hugentobler about 4 years ago

There are two small fixes to do before merge:
- hide snap lines before printing
- zoom to full causes a shift between rulers and composer content

#10 Updated by Antonio Locandro about 4 years ago

I am hoping for this for a while! This would make my life easier, any way I can try it out? I'm no developer so wouldn't know how to install or something
