I'm a recent convert to QGIS from arc and think it's amazing, so much more efficient and usable. It also doesn't crash constantly which helps me keep some of my sanity.

I was having issues finding some features though. Mainly an alternating scale bar like in Arc, where there are smaller grading's at the start of the scale bar moving to larger near the end, (to help emphasize distance) and i think it looks cleaner.

  • That's a good method to show it, although is there a way to move the smaller sections to the right of 0? All my previous figures have been made in Arc where that's the standard. It's not a massive issue if not though.
