tested the new labelling engine if works for you?

#2 Updated by infobleep - about 9 years ago

Thank you for your reply. I have tested out the new labelling engine. I tested both the newer one and the standard built in one. However even with the new labelling engine it isn't possible to manually move the labels.

A distance can be set but as every label will require a different distance and/or position, since not all text clashes are precisely at the same point each time, this is not workable.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

using data-defined label positions and orientations and operations to change those attributes interactively was recently implemented.
