Feature request #5540
Add paper units to print composer bar scale segment size
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|

It would be nice if the bar scale for print composer had an option to use paper units for the segment size instead of map units, so when the scale of the map changes the bar scale will automatically adjust to the map scale and therefore you would not have to click the bar scale and resize it.

Hello, bug triage...
in QGIS 2.13 master (and probably in QGIS 2.12.1), you can set a fixed size (between a minimum and a maximum due to scale adjustments) for the segments of the scale bar. The size is in millimeters. Combined with the number of segments, you can have a sort of fixed size scale bar with a width in millimeters.
I think that should answer to the whole feature request: with the min/max value of the segment width you can have a scale bar with rounded distance (10 km instead of 10.234335 km) where the size of the scale bar can't be too wide. If you really want a definitive fixed size, just make the min width equal to the max width.
Can you confirm there is nothing missing ?
