I use QGIS 3.4.5 and want to create a map from a WMS. The problem is the legend, which is created automatically from the WMS. The quality is very bad and the writing is barely legible. How can I change the formatting of this WMS legend? I know how to change the size of the legend, but the quality of the writing is pretty bad, even if I increase the size of the legend

WMS Example: https://www.wms.nrw.de/geobasis/wms_nw_dnrw250

    Since it is the basemap, is the legend really necessary? The contents you lay above the basemap tend to be the interesting ones. – Erik May 15 at 12:57
  • I use this WMS only as an example, because it is a free accessible WMS. The problem occurs with other WMS, too. – joe_gerner May 15 at 13:37
  • That I am aware of, but how many WMS have a legend as complex as this one? – Erik May 15 at 13:39
  • In my company we have a lot of these services with complex legends. – joe_gerner May 16 at 5:21
  • If these layers are used frequently, you could manually re-create their legend once and save it as a template. – Erik May 16 at 11:27
