I locked in the print composition (Druckzusammenstellung) the legend (attachment1). Then I saved the print composition and opened it (attachment2). But the locked legend is not locked? The changes are gone: polygon b is still part of the legend. What have I to do to lock the legend?

Thank's for any advice. phil

Locking prevents items from being moved by accident.

I just tried to reproduce the problem, but Print Composer remembered correctly which legend entries had been removed.

Are you using the latest QGIS version? Maybe try to deactivate automatic updates of the legend.

  • I use the QGIS-Version 1.7.2-Wroclaw mit Codestand (GDAL/OGR-Version: 1.8.1; PostgreSQL-Client-Version:9.1.1; SapiaLite-Version:2.4.0; Qwt-Version:5.2.1. Es wurde mit Qt 4.7.4 kompiliert und läuft gerade mit Qt 4.7.4). I also tried to deactivate automatic updates but it hasn't helped?

  • Try using 1.8.0 Lisboa. Works here.
