" After selecting the element with this tool you can also move "
" them around with the arrow keys. For accurate positioning use "
" the <strong>Position and Size</strong> dialogue, which can be "
" found in the tab <strong>Item --> General Options --> Position "
" and Size</strong>. For easier positioning you can also set "
" specific anchor points of the element within this dialogue. "

myTip.setContent(tr("You can rotate a map by setting its rotation value "
" in the <strong>Item tab --> Map</strong> section. To place a north "
" arrow in your layout you can use the <strong>Add Image</strong> "
" tool, the button with the little camera icon. QGIS comes with a "
" selection of north arrows. After the placement of the north arrow "
" in the layout you can link it with a specific map frame by activating "
" the <strong>Sync with map</strong> checkbox and selecting a map frame. "
" Whenever you change the rotation value of a linked map, the north arrow "
" will now automatically adjust its rotation. "
