Scale bar issues


Note the un-enable scale bar
Isu Scale bar

Saya kadangkala pening kepala dengan scale bar. Bergantung pada fail yang aktif, ada masa scale bar hilang, ada masa ianya dalam default degrees wal hal biasanya saya guna metres. Untuk re-set semula ke 'metre' biasanya dilihat bawah Project Properties tapi kini tak ada pulak. Kemana kah telah ianya pergi? Perlulah pengguna sedia maklum scale bar 'tersembunyi' dibawah View/Decoration tetapi apabila dipilih, tak akan aktif serentak. Pengguna perlu memilih 'enable scale bar'. Dah lupa kah? (Tak pa, ada kala saya juga begitu) Kedua, setelah scale bar aktif pada Map View, by default, ianya dalam mod degree so macam mana nak tukarkannya ke 'metre'. Walaupun Project Properties dah ghaib, pilih saja ikon bumi di belah bawah+kanan. Pilih tab General seterusnya 'metre' dan semua beres. Saya sengaja muat naik blog ni sebab saya juga kadangkala pelupa :-(


Scale bar issues

I sometimes get headaches with the scale bar. Depending on the file I activate, it sometimes goes missing, other times it is in default degrees when I usually use metres. I used to looked under Project Properties to re-set to metres but recently I could not find it. Now where has it gone? Well, for starters, the scale bar is actually 'hidden' under View/Decoration so one must get used to that. Having set that, selecting the scale bar does not immediately activate it. You have to select 'enable scale bar'. Caught you there didn't I? (Never mind, me too, sometimes) Secondly, even after the scale bar appears on the Map View, by default, it is in degree mode so how does one change that, say, 'metre'. It appears that even if Project Properties may have gone missing in action, just select the world icon at the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Then select the General tab and select 'metre' and everything is prefect if you want 'metre'. I am putting this up here simply because I too am forgetful :-(
