When I am trying to show label of these roads parallel almost all roads are showing, but in curved type visibility of labels are getting reduced. How I can show all roads names curved to road?

Using QGIS v2.18.20 in Windows.

    try change maximum angle between curved characters in "Placement" field or check 'show all labels for this layer' in "Rendering"

May be you could try this two options:

  1. In case your lines come from several files, you can set priority to highest in all of them (label properties). enter image description here

  2. In case, all your labels come from one layer, you can show all labels, even if they overlap because of the size or whatever. enter image description here


Sorry this is probably too late to help you but in case it helps others. I was having this same issue and have just resolved it.

It turned out my polylines were multipart features an QGIS was only labeling one part.

In Label -> Rendering options check to boxes marked "Label every part of multipart features" and "Merge connected lines to avoid duplicates"
