I have a Print composer with two map windows (MainMap and InsertMap). I also have a bit of text which I want to rotate on the Composer and it to be dependent upon the rotation of MainMap what ever value it may take.

I believe I should be able to use rotation. The question is how do I go about exposing the

@map_rotation

Variable associated with MainMap and using it in an expression associated with the text element in the composer and applying it to the rotation of the text element.

I am using QGIS 2.14.6 on a windows 7 box.

The use case is I am using a font symbol for my north arrow ('H' Esri North if you are interested...)

  • I just discovered that map_rotation (under map settings in print composer) doesn't update when the map rotation is changed under main properties. – csk Jan 5 '17 at 21:38
