Feature request #15217
Remove duplicate adjacent labels

It would be useful to develop a function for removing adjacent labels with the same content, giving a distance (in map units or in canvas units) as a parameter. AFAIK this is currently not possible in QGIS.

The use case: currently, this is somehow possible for line features when you have a nice topology (well connected). But if you do not have that clean topo, you'll get all the same labels (which can look ugly or not professional).
You can also have a set of polygons sharing the same value in a small area and you do not want to show too much labels (avoid crowding) and neither want to merge these features for labeling purposes. This option can help.
