This question relates to a previous question I posted four years ago: QGIS Legend - distribution of items across columns
I've created a map and in print composer I've added a legend with ten items, which I want to break across five columns evenly. I've specified the number of columns and checked Split Layers, but the end result is three columns of two items, one column of three items, and a final column of one item:
When I originally posted a question about this, Joseph replied, suggesting I adjust the column count setting to 6, which worked perfectly, and has continued to work until a couple of months ago, when suddenly the legend items have become skewed again. Can anyone offer any further advice on how to get the columns to display evenly? Thanks.
