exporting layout to pdf changes output of locked maps

Reginald
Hello users and devs,

I've been trying to create a A1 maplayout containing two A2 maps.
One of the maps I put on the layout shows an aereal photo, the other shows a
topographical map on another scale.
When my layout was ready I locked all the items and clicked on the export to
pdf icon.
The result is that both maps on the layout get refreshed and the pdf shows
the same topographical map in each A2 map window.
Is it not posible to use two different maps in one layout?
I tried different strategies but no luck.
I'm using the latest version of QGIS on windows 7 (OSGeo4W).

Regards,

Hi!
Have you tried to create different map themes and associate them with the appropriate layout map frame?

Hi,

Using a different map theme works!
Good to know.
I'm still a little bit puzzled why the locking didn't work.

Regards,

Re: exporting layout to pdf changes output of locked maps

Hi,
That should have worked without map themes, too.
1- Set the main map canvas to aerial photo, refresh the print layout (should be optional), lock one of the map items
2- Set the main map canvas to topo maps now, refresh the print layout (again should be optional but will show whether the locking works), lock the second map item.
3- Export

If that doesn't work, then there might be an issue worth reporting.

Regards,
Harrissou

Re: exporting layout to pdf changes output of locked maps

Hi,

I implemented the workflow you mentioned but it appears that locking has no
effect.
This looks like a bug.
Working with themes does work.
Maybe locking should be removed?

Regards,
