How would one fill a polygon with a custom text? I know you can use this approach to create a label-wise polygon filling (= labeling polygon with their attribute's values), but is there an option to just specify a simple text (not a simple character!) as an filling attribute?

This is the desired result for the polygons with the the example text "Example":

  • should this be always the same text for every polygon in this layer? or is it a text string from the attributes? – LaughU Jan 24 '18 at 7:51
  • The same text for every polygon. See the example image in the updated OP. – Marjan Moderc Jan 24 '18 at 9:14

You can use the method outlined in the question that you linked to but instead of specifiying an attribute just use a string in the data defined properties of the font marker. You will need to adjust the font marker spacing and font size to suit.

point pattern fill with font marker

  • Tried that, but with string in double quotes, so it didn't work, and I gave up too quickly! Thanks! #facepalm – Marjan Moderc Jan 24 '18 at 9:32
  • mixedbredie, but how it is possible to minimize the number of signatures up to one, to be able to put a single layer name in the middle of the polygon? Many thanks! – Taras Jul 17 '18 at 12:05
