In my project I downloaded some map polygons from the Open Government portal of Canada.
One of the files contains annotations for provinces, territories, water bodies, and more.
When I import it into my QGIS project I only see polygons filled with a solid color (see map figure). But I believe it would be possible to fill the polygon with text, that is also provided in the attribute table.
I got as far as displaying the text at specific X and Y coordinates, but it did not fit into the given polygons.
Maybe I could make use of the other files that were provided for my "base_anno.*" file?
Overall I think it should be possible to bring the text into the boxes provided by the shapefile. I just don't know where and how I could do that
