I am trying to print a map made in an earlier version of QGIS, but now the text annotations are not appearing in the print composer. "Draw map canvas items" is checked on. Am I missing something else perhaps? I've tried in both version 2.14 and 2.18 (running on a Mac with Sierra).
At this point I'm wondering if anyone else can confirm that this is just my problem and not a bug. Can anyone else on a Mac confirm that text annotations look normal in a print composer? They printed fine a year ago (the last time I worked in QGIS). I now have a new computer and downloaded the latest version of the software. I've tried creating entirely new projects to isolate the problem, but text annotations won't print in any of them.
