When, for example, using transparent polygons with an aerial photo underneath (I imagine this is a common thing to do), the composer legend entries can look a very different colour to the polygons in the map. See the attached screenshot, particularly the red, purple and dark blue legend entries.

It would be good if there was a way to make the colours more similar. I'm not sure how to do this - I think something like taking an actual slice out of the map to use for the legend entry would be very complicated. Maybe there could be an option to specify a colour or an image or something to put under the legend entries... or an option to disable transparency in the legend, or something along those lines. Does anybody know of any other software that tries to deal with this issue?
