I recognized that if you add a point layer and like to show labels (e.g. to display a value per item), you get (IMHO) ugly default settings:
  • font: Ubuntu
  • flags: Bold
  • size: 11
    The result is that you have a little bit ugly layout, as the font looks a bit like Comic Sans/Modern/... and isn't a good choice for serious mapping, similar for the big characters.
So I suggest the following defaults that (IMHO) look a bit more serious for most scenarios:
  • font: Arial
  • size: 8
  • no flags

I don't think you have Arial on Linux installs. On windows you do.

#2 Updated by Noone Noone about 10 years ago

On Ubuntu I do have it, but anyway every more decent font (non rounded character shapes, non serif, ...) would be ok.
