Curved labels ignore "Always show upside-down labels".
See curved line without label at the center of the attached screeshot.

Options used for labeling:
  • Placement curved
  • Above line
  • Line orientation dependent position
  • Always show upside-down labels
  • Maximum angle between curved characters: inside=60 outside=95
  • Show all labels for this layer

Notice on the screeshot, the combined effects of this bug and bug #5778. So for a straight line from SE to NW (like left "Le Buëch"), the label is drawned but not on the right side of the line.

Hi Laurent,

Curved labels are always drawn right-side-up (by PAL lib). So, the "Always show upside-down labels" setting should probably just be disabled when curved placement is chosen, until such time as #5778 is fixed or PAL can be updated to draw curved labels upside-down.

Hi Larry,
Thanks for your feedback. Meanwhile, I will find a workaround.
