Description

The "Field containing label" property is not saved, using the normal labeling symbology.

If this is relevant in any way : the layer is a polygon layer, and the label is displaying joined data (the source is an excel file).

Using version 1.8.0.6 on Windows.

what do you mean with "normal" labelling symbology? the one available in the vector properties or the one available trough the "abc" button in the labelling toolbar? thanks.

The one in vector properties.

that is the old engine, no more maintained and kept until 2.0 just for compatibility with old projects. Please use the new tool. Cheers!

Thanks ! Did now know that ! Will the new engine eventually replace this screen ? Should I use the new engine exclusively or will the old symbology be automagically converted to the new format ?

not sure if new labelling will go in vector properties

Should I use the new engine exclusively

I would say yes

or will the old symbology be automagically converted to the new format ?

pretty sure this will not happen
