Description

When using perimeter label placement, could there be a way to offset the label's position along the line from its default placement? This could be either an offset by millimeter/map unit, or perhaps a selection to place the label near the start, center or end of the linestring (similar to existing options for marker placement in the marker line symbology).

This would be useful when a line or polygon has multiple labels from different fields, to avoid clustering of labels at the center of the map extent or linestring.

Edited to add: this would also apply to labels located along polyline features.
