I'm new to QGIS (version 2.6.0). I think my question should be easy to solve but I still get stuck at making labels show up on contour lines. These lines were generated from extracting raster (asc file). Then I tried to label those contour lines on the plot. I checked the box of "label this layer with XX" (XX is the attribute name I need) in layer properties, and clicked OK, but the there is no label showing up, I also changed the front size, but still I can't see any label. Is there anything else I need to do to make it work?

    What happens if you zoom in to look at a single line - still no label visible? Do you have any 'scale based visibility' options checked ('Rendering')? – Simbamangu Dec 8 '14 at 8:40
  • I zoomed in but there is still no label visible. The 'scale based visibilty' option is not checked. – user2815916 Dec 8 '14 at 11:26

I reinstalled QGIS version 2.6.1. Now the problem is solved.
