I am giving a QGIS course. Both of my students, working with QGIS version 3.4.3 (Madeira), do not have the option to add a north arrow to their map canvas in the map layout. I cannot figure out why this is the case, and online I am not able to find any guidance whatsoever. Why is this option missing, and how can I enable it?

1 Answer 1


North arrows in older versions of qgis are added as SVG grafik and then set the rotate (sync) option
