I have a layout in QGIS where 3 map views are rotated to 35 deg. The grids automatically rotate to match the maps rotation, however the labels do not.

Does anyone know a way to make the coordinate labels match the rotation of the map?

Grid Coordinates not matching grid/map rotation

  • Which QGIS version are you using specifically? Layouts are used in QGIS 3.x; Print composer is used in QGIS 2.x. Your question title, body and tags include a mixture of these :) – Joseph Oct 15 at 13:09
  • I don't believe there is a direct option as the Draw Coordinates options are based on the item rotation (from those you only have horizontal and vertical options) and not the map rotation. maybe overlaying an empty map on top of the original map that you would rotate the item to the same angle as the original map rotation would do it, but then the labels wouldn't be place on edges of the original map. – B-C B.
