I am trying to label rivers's names. The rivers include multiple sections. I have many repeats like "fleuve Loire ". How to avoid labeling repetition? "Merge connected lines to avoid duplicate labels" does not seem to be sufficient.

How to place the labels at the "middle" of each river (sum of sections /2)?

    Under Placement select curved. It will reduce the the number of labels and the names will follow the shape of rivers. Another possible way is to activate Limit number of features smaller than and select some threshold value in mm. – ahmadhanb Feb 8 '18 at 14:25

    You could dissolve your layer using the TOPONYME field which would give you a single feature for each river. – Joseph Feb 8 '18 at 14:27
