I am trying to archive the following: I have a print setup with 3 map canvases. I want to set the scale text for a specific map canvas (lets say its ID is "main_view").
In QGIS 2.14. I can use the normal scale bar and set its style to "numeric" and link it to my desired map canvas. However I have dynamic text in which the scale text will be integrated like this:
<b>Further Infos:</b> <br>[%"open_info"%] Created: [% day( now())%].[% month( now() )%].[% year( now() )%] Scale: [%$scale%]
So I can not use the transformed version from the scale bar. The command
[%$scale%] yields just a 0 because I dont know how to link to my map specific canvas.
