When trying to label a polygon layer I wanted to place the label over the polygon centroids.
This should be possible by selecting the ABC Advanced pane and ticking off "over centroid".
But it seems ABC is rather poor at calculating the centroids. See more here:

Example shp is attached. Try to use ABC labelling wiusing fid as label and ask for "over centroid" placement.
