How can I move the sacle bar (blue circle) to the Lower left corner (red circle) ?

  • Why do you care for that gap or margin? – Jakob Nov 23 '16 at 8:29
  • I set the bar at the bottom left of the map- and the gap disturbed me – newGIS Nov 23 '16 at 9:55

Set the Scalebar property Display > Box margin to 0 and drag the bottom frame border up to fit the scalebar.

The last lower left gap you cannot get rid of. It's the margin of the number 1. Margin can only be control vertically, between the scale numbers and the scalebar, but not horizontally.
