When a marker symbol is composed of a simple symbol and a svg symbol, if marker scale option is set to «area», then the simple symbol scales ok, but svg symbol scales with height and not area. Therefore they are not synced.

Way to reproduce :
  • open a point layer
  • edit style with a new marker symbol
  • add a svg sub-symbol
  • add a simple sub-symbol, for example a circle just around the svg icon
  • set the marker scale field to a numeric field
  • set the marker scale to «area»
  • apply

For most of the points (field values > 1), the svg part of the symbol will be bigger than the circle, instead of growing on a area-based scale too.

Hello, bug triage...

it seems to be fixed, at least in QGIS 2.13. There is no more scale parameter (perhaps replaced with size) and the size parameter on the whole marker style (SVG + Simple) just sets the size of all the marker components: a size of 5.5 at the upper style level will be used for SVG level and Simple level.

I think we can close this bug. Can you confirm ?
