Feature request #3756

Flexible positioning of scalebar/compass

Easy fix?:No


I usually save my maps from the view as image (rather than using print composer). I would be really useful to have an advanced scalebar/compass placement option, as a percentage of the mapview window for tweaking where they show up.

As the print composer allows to place the scalebar wherever you want, having two ways to do it is an enhancement.

I've finished this and it has been merged into master.

Decorations can now be placed at user defined margins from the corners. I.e. anywhere on the canvas.
