I am using QGIS 2.6 and looking for an similar tool like "converting label to annotation" as you can find it in ArcGIS Desktop.
The "easy custom labeling" Tool in QGIS seems to come close to the ArcGIS solution. However, after I created my custom label layer I am not able to move my labels at the required location. Even the leaders are pointing in different directions and are not linking the label and the feature on the map.
Especially if features are clustered in one region it is helpful to drag them a little bit apart to make the map clear.
Is there another way to individually format and locate my labels?
