I studying the layer labeling options in QGIS and encountered two options which seem to be the same. If I understand the QGIS documentation correctly, the option "priority" within "Positioning" determines which label to render when there are two Labels overlaping.

The Z-Index Option in "Rendering" seems to be doing the same.

What is the difference between these two options?


The "priority" option tells which label will be displayed if two labels overlap but if you set the option to render all labels (even overlapping labels), the Z index option lets you choose which one will be on top and will be more likely to be readable.
