I have added labels showing the District names of Lesotho, but the highlighted feature is not showing a label until I zoom in or out.

Zoom to country extent and label is missing:

The label shows when zoomed in:

"Show all labels for this layer" has been checked.

Is this a bug with version 3? I am currently using 3.0.3

  • You could to use "Map units" for size of labels Commented Sep 7, 2018 at 8:51
  • Unfortunately it gives me the same outcome. It will even show me the label if I zoom out, just not when zoomed to the layer extent

  • Yes I tried those solutions (removing holes and checking geometry) but no luck. This is actually the second time I have encountered this issue, and the first time was recently when I had created my own simple polygon with 3 features that had to be labelled. One area wouldn't show a label when zoomed to the layer's extent, but the label would show when zooming in or out.

Under closer inspection of the vector layer, I noticed there were a few occasions where polygon lines were crossing eachother. After manually removing the unnecessary vertices, the missing label now correctly shows at all zoom levels.
