Does anyone know how to make a layout to print with a compass/north arrow, scale and map legend?

QGIS with XYZ layers allows maps to be created with map 'furniture' such as a compass rose, scale bar, legend et.c

Hi! A great tool for printing maps with a compass and a scale is MyOSMatic, which allows you to design custom OpenStreetMap maps. However, adding a legend is not possible that way, since no complete "legend" exists for OSM Carto as far as I know.

Hi! I have tried MyOSMatic but it just says "Waiting for rendering to begin..." and I don't know how to do now. Do you know?

This is because currently the server is busy with rendering other peoples maps. Usually, it doesn't take long for maps to be rendered, but if there is a lot of load on the server you might experience delays.
