How can I print a map with QGIS to a specific scale? E.g. I have a map of Austria (projection: Albers equal area) and want a printout on paper at 1: 3000000?


When you add the "map" object in the composer, select item, enter the "item" tab and select the scale you want.

  • Giovanni, thank you very much . I works fine (I was trying to do the job via the scale-bar ) – Kurt Feb 4 '12 at 20:22
