In the version 2.18.6 if I make a layout with many thematic maps coming from the same shape, how can I avoid the refresh of the maps?

I am doing a layout with the same shapefile split in four maps with different thematic design but when I export it all maps are refreshed with only design.

If I understand you well, what you have to do is when you create the first design of the first map, you should freeze (lock) the style by checking Lock layer for map item and Lock layer style for map item for the first map. By locking the items and style of the items, you will stop refreshing the style on every change in the design.

enter image description here

Then you can change the design and Add new map for the new design and freeze (lock) the style by checking Lock layer for map item and Lock layer style for map item for the second map, and so on until you finish the four designs. Then you can export the layout to an image.

For 2.18 version, you need to use Lock Layers and Lock style for Layers which act same as Lock layer for map item and Lock layer style for map item.

  • Thank you for the answer, in th 2.18 Qgis version I have in Items Properties "lock layers" and "lock style for layers", should they works fine? – Paolo Pasquariello Nov 24 '17 at 8:54
