I just started working with QGIS, and I'm having a problem with my labels. I have figured out how to manually move labels for the points on my map.
I have edited the attribute table to include x, y, and rotation with the decimal number option.
I can move labels around freely (which is absolutely necessary because my points are quite close together).
The problem occurs when I save the attribute table. As soon as I save, the labels start shifting. I figured that my numbers had been truncated, which turned out to be the case, so I gave the x, y, and rotation fields the max length possible (20) to remedy the situation. It helped some, but my labels continue to snap to different locations. As soon as I hit save, the labels move, but the coordinates stay the same.
Can anyone help?
