On QGIS 2.8 I am trying to use data definition to define a cliff hashmark.
I have created a style for the line with a simple marker and plan to use the vertical anchor point offset to move the marker to the proper side of the line.
I have created a string field and enter "bottom" or "top" into the field. After creating the line the hashmarks are displayed correctly. However, as soon as I save the shapefile it defaults back to a centered anchor point.
Am I missing a step somewhere or is this a bug?
