Figure <A HREF="#fig:print_composer_complete">41</A> shows the print composer with an example print layout including each type of map element described in the sections above. <P>
<P> The print composer allows you to create several output formats and it is possible to define the resolution (print quality) and paper size:
- The mActionFilePrintPrint icon allows to print the layout to a connected printer or as PDF or Postscript file depending on installed printer drivers.
- The mActionExportMapServerExport as image icon exports the composer canvas in several image formats such as PNG, BPM, TIF, JPG, ...
- The mActionSaveAsSVGExport as SVG icon saves the print composer canvas as a SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic). Note: Currently the SVG output is very basic. This is not a QGIS problem, but a problem of the underlaying Qt library. This will hopefully be sorted out in future versions.
