Steps to reproduce:

1. Enable labelling plugin

1. Try to print it with "Arial" font and 7 points in height

Results are different: printed label are too narrow and distorted, on the screen they are OK

It seems that the labels doesn't respect the distance between letters.

#2 Updated by Martin Dobias over 10 years ago

The labeling plugin has been moved to qgis application and its functionality is available from the "attributes" toolbar (the one with attribute table and measure tools) and from Layer menu.

If you still see labeling plugin in your plugin manager, that's just a remainder from the older install. You can delete it as it is outdated.

I can't replicate your problem, I believe it's happening to you only because you're using the old plugin. Please test again.

#3 Updated by luca76 - over 10 years ago

I've disabled the labeling plugin.

Made a new project, loaded vector layer, applied curved labeling.

Same result. See attachment.

NOTE: I'm using the OSGEO4W qgis-dev package, yesterday's version.

#5 Updated by Borys Jurgiel over 10 years ago

I confirm the same problem on Ubuntu 9.10. If affects printouts, pdfs (rasterized and not), svg and raster images.
