I am attempting to print a simple map from QGIS in portrait orientation. When I use the "Add New Map" tool it brings the map in at an extent which matches my original data frame if I were to use landscape orientation. See below:
However, when I set it to portrait, even if I do so before I add the map, it zooms out drastically and places my area of interest at the bottom end of the map.
Now, a bit of researching has revealed that I could zoom into the area I am interested in with my mouse's scroll wheel. However, my mouse does not have a scroll wheel. In addition, the Ctrl++ shortcut that works in the rest of QGIS does not work in Print Composer. Any help would be appreciated.
