Description

Point symbols can be angled through Data Defined Properties, but this function does not work with Point Displacement. Only point symbols that have not been displaced, are angled as prescribed. The Size property works though.
Is this a bug? And when can this be fixed?

History

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi about 6 years ago

  • Subject changed from Point displacement angles to Point displacement: data defined size and angle does not work
  • Target version set to Version 2.2
  • Priority changed from High to Normal
  • Category set to Symbology
  • Affected QGIS version changed from 2.0.1 to master

I can confirm the issue also for the size. It seems that for both the rotation and size the value used is the one of the first feature of the cluster, that is applied to all others.

PS
about "when": it depends, if it critical for you to have it fixed soon better have a look to the qgis page where are listed the companies that offer commercial support.

Thank you for acknowledging the issue. I hope that it can be fixed in the next version. Actually, I would also hope to see some more options in the Displacement panel. Fx an option to add a leader from the origin to the displaced point, like in Google earth.
