I have multiple grids in my project file. I am utilizing Atlas to automatically print all grids. I was successful yet I have added "SEE SHEETS A1..." within the sides of the mapview as required by our client. What I think now to solve this is similar to Dynamic Text. Yet I wasn't able to figure it out.

The output is should be like this: enter image description here

This can be done with the aggregate function in expressions:

for example the northern neighbour:

          expression:='See sheet ' || "fieldname_with_sheet_nr",
          filter:=intersects($geometry, geometry(@parent))
                  AND x_max($geometry)=x_max(geometry(@parent))
                  AND y_max($geometry)>y_max(geometry(@parent)),
  • This worked for me very well. It fits what I need. Its just that the prerequisite knowledge is that you know how expressions works in the Layout Manager. Thanks a lot. Jul 13, 2023 at 0:47
