Hi all,

The email chain below is just one example of a user who has issues
with QGIS after installing the OpenLayers plugin. Stackexchange is
filled with similar examples (See

I'm wondering if it's time we discussed the future of this plugin. Now
that we have a viable replacement (Quick Map Services) which doesn't
demonstrate these issues, should we deprecate the OpenLayers plugin
and remove it from the plugin repo?

Sorry, previously posted response under wrong subject:

Thank you.   I have been doing some additional testing, it appears to
relate to having a few maps on the canvas that use the Open Street Map
underlay.  The behavior is pretty much as noted in the referenced issue.

Even with a single OSM underlay, while I do get an export, the
underlay is not complete, i.e. jagged edges where some tiles are missing in
the exported png, even though they do appear on the map.

I will try QuickMapServices.plugin.
