Original Redmine Issue: 5042


As an effort of standardization, I believe it might be positive to change the name of the Print Composer to "Layout". It would be more uniform with what is common in graphic design, CAD and other standard GIS apps. This would also lessen the training and adjustment effort that users would have to make to use the software, thus reducing barrier to entry.

So, I recommend this :
New Print Composer > New Layout
Composer Manager > Layout Manager
Print Composers > Layouts

I do feel this is necessary, Qgis should try to align itself to a 'standardization' so it would be easier to adjust.

Maybe a decision should be reached on this instead of leaving a ticket open indefinitely. Do we rename Composer to Layout or not. If the consensus is Composer is good enough and QGIS users are familiar with it then let's close this, on the other hand if Layout seems a more used term then let's just change it at least in the GUI not in any API or Python plugins which make this a difficult thing to change

Closing this - I think this should be discussed on the Dev list rather than in the issue tracker.


  • resolution was changed from to invalid
  • status_id was changed from Open to Closed
