I'm currently working on a map for the different brazilian biomes.

Here's the map on the standard QGIS view I have to label them and show it on my final map, but when I'm working on the composer, this happens:

Nope, I didn't crop it wrong.

That's the exact size of my map. If you take a close look, you'll see that the "CERRADO" word appears cut in the middle on the upper- left side. I've looked around and found a pretty similar situation here but the solution proposed doesn't apply. It still displays like the second picture. I need all three labels to be inside the map window I created on the composer. Any thoughts?

  • Is the map rotated?

  • Yes, it is. I have this map and other two (the squares on the image above) which are also rotated.

    Ok. Unfortunately the option to prevent cut-off labels doesn't play nicely with rotated maps (in other words - it doesn't work at all!). I've hit this same issue on maps I've created.

You can try this settings in your labelling options.

Or perhaps, you could check the map canvass and composer have the same rotation.

  • My labels have the exact same settings since I posted this question (I'll add a picture there) and no rotation has been applied to the labels. If I do so, they appear rotated on the final map, which is not what I desire.
