I completed a print composer project, locked layer and layer style files and locked the map, then saved the print composer, then saved the complete project. I closed QGIS and when I opened the project again, the saved print composer didn't display the map. All other items, legend labels etc are saved and displayed.

I tried to refresh render/ rectangle/ cache and it didn't work. I had to make the map again.

  • Have you unlocked the map-element and then refreshed it? Also, you could export your map as a PDF, why is this not an option? – Erik Nov 23 '18 at 8:04
  • Hmm, I just tried to open a closed project, I could not reproduce the error you mentioned, could it be depend on what type of layers you have loaded? – axel_ande Nov 23 '18 at 13:15
