I just save the project as image, then add the image to a document. While perhaps a few more clicks than using the clipboard, it works fine.

I think this looks like a nice (easy?) feature request to make this core functionality? - right-click menu on mapcanvas with: - save Map to Clipboard (- set size of MapCanvas to...) I know this is also often needed... - one or two buttons to do this? While a plugin works for older versions, I think it should not be needed for a teacher/user to hear: install QGIS and add the following plugins.... (while that is actually what I often have to say....) I think I could even try to do this :-) Regards, Richard Duivenvoorde _______________________________________________ Qgis-user mailing list Qgisfirstname.lastname@example.org List info: http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/qgis-user Unsubscribe: http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/qgis-user
