Description

This concerns multiline labels which are plotted at an offset from the centroid. The offset is used with regard to the outline of the label. This is fine if a boundary is plotted. If no boundary is plotted the offset should be to the nearest character, so the label can be closer to the centroid.
A solution is to calculate multiple outlines for each line and determine from these the optimal placement.
