I want to create a atlas showing in the legend only the layer that is displayed on that page.

There are two options for the legend item:

  • only show items inside linked map
  • only show items inside current report feature

The first one shortens the legend to the layers in the same theme, but I suppose I have to tick the second as well. The second doesn't seem to do anything.

Is there another way to do this?

For me, the second option does work. But you can always edit your legend manually. Simply check off the box refresh automatically in your legend item properties.

  • In an atlas-layout I have multiple extents (30) and for each extent 5 layers overlaying each other (rasters). So manually adjusting the legend is not an option. I iterate over the extents and to view the different layers in a different map I use Themes. I would like to create a Theme for the same layer for all the extents. This works fine for the maps, but not for the legend.
