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


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
