Feature request #12474
Automate label rotation within polygon
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||invalid|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||20622|
ArcGis has a label placement option "always straight" that automatically rotates the labels within polygons for the best fit. This is especially useful for parcel numbers around the ends of cul-de-sacs, and parcels that are tall and narrow.
I know I can manually rotate each label, but I maintain a map with over 6000 labeled parcels and it would be extremely time consuming. A feature to automate this would be excellent.

Wow, can't believe I didn't notice it was already implemented. Thank you.
I will say, the label locations aren't quite as consistent as arcgis, which could perhaps be improved.
However, QGis does a better job labeling as many polygons as possible (where arcgis leaves some blank.)
noticed the attached image for a comparison.
In any case, it works for me. Thanks again.
