I am trying to change the page size in the QGIS 3.0 Composer but I am not able to see the Composition tab. I have right clicked an empty space in the toolbar but did not see anything about composition. I am using Windows 7. I tried looking at the QGIS docs but they are still in testing.

It's sort of hidden, but still there. In QGIS 3.0, you can now have multiple pages in a single composer screen, and each page can be adjusted on its own. The pages are hidden from the Items panel, but all you need to do is right-click on any page and select Page properties. The settings you're used to seeing will pop into the Item properties tab:

  • That's weird - on Ubuntu, the Item Properties panel is empty when the canvas is selected/activated... I guess that's why I couldn't find it... – DPSSpatial Mar 1 '18 at 16:08

    It didn't show up on mine until I right-clicked. If it's still not working, you can click the "new page" button and specify the correct size there, then just delete the previous page. – JoshC Mar 1 '18 at 16:20
  • I'm building a new VM to test this again - I'll report back. – DPSSpatial Mar 1 '18 at 16:28

    Turns out it works, but I don't get that right-click move to expose the page properties... – DPSSpatial Mar 1 '18 at 16:51
  • Could be a bug. – GreyHippo Mar 1 '18 at 21:30
