There is a Map composer with created map. I want to "Add group" to Legend - it appears in the Legend Properties, but not in Legend on the map.

I am using QGIS 2.18.8. This problem was also in 2.16 version. Am I missing something?


You can just drag and drop your layers into groups, than just refresh legend item by clicking itnto print composer canvas or any map item.

  • Ok, this feature I have missed and it looks good. But I have some Text labels (like - A, B, C) on map, which want to add to Legend. Trough "Add group" in some previous versions it was dead easy. – Oskars May 23 '17 at 6:36
  • @Oskars sorry I don't understant very well what you want to achieve, maybe you can edit this question, or ask new question with this problem, providing some screenshots or pictures etc. – Oto Kaláb May 23 '17 at 15:54

The Group will not be shown until you drag any of the layers inside the new group:
