Description

In the Advanced tab of the new labelling, several options are greyed out (e.g. the option to show colliding labels), unclear why.

History

#1 Updated by alberto collatin almost 8 years ago

I think that some of the options are greyed out due to the layer type (e.g. "merge connected lines..." or "Add direction symbol" have a meaning only for lines and with a linear layer they're not greyed).
I confirm that the option "Features don't act as obstacles for labels" (not clear what's the meaning) is greyed out, "Engine settings" button works and I can view colliding labels.
Tested on shapefiles.

"Features don't act as obstacles for labels" should be to allow text being written on top of features or not. This is needed to be able to swithc this on or off. Is this a regression or just we do not understand the reason for this?

Answer should be there:
https://github.com/qgis/Quantum-GIS/commits/master/src/ui/qgslabelingguibase.ui

http://svn.osgeo.org/qgis/trunk/qgis/src/ui/qgslabelingguibase.ui
Around this:
<item>
<widget class="QCheckBox" name="chkNoObstacle">
<property name="enabled">
<bool>true</bool>
</property>
<property name="text">
<string>Features don't act as obstacles for labels</string>
</property>
</widget>
</item>

  • Target version set to Version 2.0.0

#4 Updated by Anita Graser about 7 years ago

  • Priority changed from Normal to Severe/Regression

Switched to blocker because the 2.0 GUI shouldn't contain options that make no sense.

Hi Anita,

I am currently redesigning the labeling options dialog and will address this issue (and others similar to it). The dialog redesign is for in-line integration of data defined fields, to make it more extensible for new features, and to prepare for its use in a future styles-/rule-based setup.

What's the current state?
