Easy fix?:No Copied to github as #:13552


Currently only one distance can be selected in the new labelling engine. It would be good to have the opportunity to select an X and Y offset, as in the old labelling

Revision 61a50225
Added by Larry Shaffer about 9 years ago

Add quadrant, offset, rotation for points/centroids in adv labeling

- Possible fix for #4634, #5256, #6162
- Uses GEOS to convert centroids to points before PAL solution

- Implements #3492, #6285
- Convert PAL layer types 'over point/centroid' to 'offset from point/centroid'
- Add quadrant offsets (above/below/right, etc. like in old labeling)
- Add x and y offset, in mm or map unit, in addition to quadrant
- Default for offset is set to map units (mm scales oddly with zoom)

- Implements #4517, #6118; updates fix for #4317
- Rotation is independent of data defined columns
- Rotation bounding box included in offset calculation
- GUI spin box range set from -360 to +360 for initial dev testing

- Keep from scaling letter/word spacing if set to 0
