I have two layers - settlement point layer and polygon layer, which contains an object that I would like to use as an obstacle for the labels of settlements. I'm applying the following steps:

1. Label settlements with Show labels for this layer option, as a result some labels cover polygon boundary

2. In the polygon layer Properties dialogue I select Labels > Discourage other labels from covering features in this layer, and click OK

3. Nothing changes, and when I check Properties > Labels of the polygon layer the option is set to the default No labels value.

The same steps work perfectly fine in 2.12.3
