Print Composer 2.0 – Take #6

The latest version of Print composer features new

Rulers and guide lines or “alignments”

Rulers are a well-known feature in graphics programs such as Gimp and Photoshop. Now you can also find them in QGIS Print Composer. Click onto the ruler, hold the mouse key down and move the cursor to position guide lines for map feature alignment.


Of course, there’s also the handy “Snap to grid” functionality.

    GReat feature, but…Anyone can tell me how to move/remove guide line after they have been placed?

    • You can move them by clicking close to the existing line in the ruler and moving while holing the mouse down – the mouse cursor does not change (yet?) but it should work.
