Just started using QGIS (after trying what I need to in GRASS).
Using the Print Composer, I've put down a map which is based on the map in my map canvas, which is what I'll want to print. Then put down a few logos as well, which need to be printed on the map.
Now, the people who will eventually be using this map will be panning and zooming around merrily on the map canvas, then expect it to print what is on the map canvas, as well as the logos. Using a saved Print Composer file here will be fine.
Trouble is, can the Print Composer automatically update it's extents to match the map canvas? If not, I don't think it's a HUGE problem - I'll just tell them to use the "Set to map canvas extent" button, but it would be nice if it could do this automatically.
