Feature request #15701
Show Symbology (e.g. City-Markers) only when an associated label can be displayed

The current QGIS labeling engine offers options to hide labels if there is not enough space available to display them. However this option is not available for symbology. It would be great if symbology (e.g. city-markers) could only be plotted to the map when an associated label (e.g. the name of the cities) can be displayed.
Example: If one decides to create a map where as much cities as possible should be shown with a certain symbology (e.g. a city-marker-symbol) and also with their labels (name of the cities) the current labeling engine only hides the labels but the symbology stays visible if there is not enough space available. This leads to maps where some cities are labeled others not but the symbology is visible for all cities.
