Currently, rotation of labels based on a table field is only possible if fixed position is activated (x,y fields are defined AND filled for coordinates). This same option should be activated also for PAL labelling

Added by Larry Shaffer about 7 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

Now in master it is possible to easy populate the x/y columns with the "pin labels" tool, and so have the labels automatically rotated.
