QGIS 1.7 doesn't seem to have an 'italic' choice when annotating a map in Print Composer, only 'regular' or 'bold' fonts, a rather surprising omission if correct. Is there some other way to create an italic font in Print Composer?


In 1.7.4 version, when I click Item tab on the right of print composer and select font button i get options to change to italic,bold and regular. Except for "System" font, i see the italic options for every other font. See screen below.

Are you using any versions prior to this?

Are we talking about grid labels here? For italics try changing the font to one that includes italic characters. Arial, for example :) Nick.

  • Changing to a different font worked. Many thanks for both your responses and suggestions! – D Jones Jul 5 '12 at 13:14
