Working on QGIS 3.6.1 I am reproducing an ArcMap Layout in Print Composer. This is basically pretty straightforward, but I need to recalculate the y-position of each map element, because in QGIS Print Composer page origin is top-left corner whereas in ArcMap Layout page origin is bottom-left (thus y_qgis = page_height - y_arcmap using the same anchor point).

Since manually doing this calculus for each map element is quite painful, my question: Is there a way to define/set page origin in one of both applications QGIS Print Composer OR ArcMap Layout?

    You can change origin for each element,for example bottom-left – Fran Raga Apr 17 '19 at 11:18
  • Please decide which of QGIS and ArcMap you wish to ask about in this particular question. You can always ask about the other one in a separate question. – PolyGeo Oct 1 '19 at 4:04
