How can i have the text labels display when the layers are rotated? I have several polygons layers rotated and i can not get the label text to display. When the rotation is removed the label texts shows but when it is rotated again it goes off.

I am running QGIS 2.8.2 Wien.

  • what version of QGIS are you using?

    sounds like an issue that was fixed in 2.8.3 and 2.10

Upgrade to 2.8.3 or 2.10 or later. That issue was fixed in 2.8.3.

  • I have upgraded to 2.8.3 but it still persist. When i rotate the the layer the labels disappear.

  • @Mapperx If you are seeing this at a version later than 2.8.3 then I suggest that you update your question to say so, and to provide more precise details of your workflow so that others may be able to try and reproduce your issue.
