Current behaviour one has to manually click set to map canvas extent, an option to sync both would be a nice addition I think

Maybe a checkbox with auto which grays out min/max values?

I totally agree. Printing out a map is not an easy task for novice users when the print composer doesn't automatically reflect the canvas.

I just finished a new plugin which will syncronize the map with composer. When it is approved I will update this issue.

The plugin is finished but it is experimental and it only works on 64 bit version


Updated by Antonio Locandro over 2 years ago

Tried with 32 bit and worked, I was hoping more of a check box that each time the map canvas moved the print composer would synchronize, but this is a compromise.

I hope to get it working so that you don't have to click the toolbar button but I need to learn how to work with signals and slots.

Maybe keeping both options would be nice, keep up the good work! Thanks for the plugin
