Hi !

When you save a composer (as PDF or image...), we could have the composer's name as default filename...

Thanks !

Can we have something as default? I had to do exports today and manually doing this is time consuming

My thoughts

If one creates a composer without a name (yes most of us just disregard the annoying popup asking for a name) can the default composer name be the projects filename? If a composer is names obviously the export should use the composer's name

Even if this issue needs to be solved, I think you can use my plugin Maps Printer to quickly export multiple map composers at once. It uses the composer name by default.
