I work with QGIS 2.0.1.
I have two problems with the representation of symbols.
The first problem is that after I selected a symbol with the type: font and adjust the size of the symbol with the unit: map units, the symbol is not displayed completely within the Legend.
Is this a general problem that the icon size is also scaled within the legend?
The next problem is that when I want to export my map to a PDF file the Symbols are not displayed correctly.
The icon consists of two components.
I have tried two different versions but the result was not useful.
Here are the two variants i have tried:
- Symbol as font and white background as a Font.
- Symbol as font and white background as a simple symbol with a square.
In QGIS both variants provide a correct representation.
But the result was similar for both variants. The Symbol components are shifted from each other in the PDF-Export.
