comment How to use centroid option in Field Calculator in QGis
I'm interested in seeing if there's a 'real' answer (without a workaround) to this question now, as I see there's a 'centroid' function in the field calculator which I don't think was there before. However, I played with it, and am also unclear on the syntax. Perhaps there is a better answer to this question after all, using 1.9.0 Master.)

comment How to create a customizabe table in QGIS Print Composer?
Thanks @RyanGarnett. I'm on a Windows7 machine, 64bit dual-quad core i7 with 8GB of RAM. I tried the SimpleSVG plugin, but it of course doesn't work with the 'new symbology' options, which my map is using.

comment How to create a customizabe table in QGIS Print Composer?
@RyanGarnett; Yes, I have tried working in Inkscape, but for some reason it is just painfully slow on every computer I've ever used (including this one, which is quite well-equipped.) It just wasn't worth the frustration. Any good tips for SVG that make it actually usable?

Sorry, forgot to mention that I am using QGIS 1.9.0-Master. I am aware that I can add .html (that's why I mentioned it) but was curious if there's a better/easier way.

comment How does manual Label Placement in QGIS 1.9 work?
Actually, I just figured it out. You must have a column set so that the "Show Label" option is data defined. Integer seems to work fine, with 1 meaning visible, and 0 meaning hidden.

comment How does manual Label Placement in QGIS 1.9 work?
Great! I had all of that figured out already, but couldn't figure out the 'pinning' concept. It turns out that when you manually modify a label, it is 'pinned' and then you can modify it as SS_Rebelious says. The only part I don't understand is the "Show/Hide" labels tool, which I cannot get to activate. Perhaps because I already specified "Show all labels"?

comment Are there any COGO tools in QGIS 1.9+?
Thanks. Unfortunately, I've played with m.cogo in GRASS, and it's a bit 'clunky' for our needs. I need something that is quick and has a minimum of steps in order to roll out to a 'production' environment. m.cogo would work if it was a less frequently used task, but alas it's something we do often.
