I would like to be able to specify an order of label placement priorty in QGIS. Rather than just saying 'label in the top left', I would like to be able to say 'prefer to label top left, but if not then label bottom left'.
There is already an option to be able to do this in ArcMap.
I cannot see a way to replicate this in QGIS. My current workaround is to use the offset placement from point, but with some exceptions using data defined placement coordinates. This starts to get very time consuming after a few large datasets!
Any suggestions or best practices would be welcomed here.
