When the tooltip is activated on a geographical layer it pops up with the cursor on the top-left corner of the label thus covering part of it ...

Is there any way to fine-tune this behaviour (without rewriting a select tool in python...)?

  • Appending characters on the left ... ? – snaileater Jun 18 '19 at 15:17
  • I would add the following : when the tooltip pops up zooming on the map (with mouse wheel) is impossible ... you have to move the cursor so that the label disappear and the scrolling gets possible again ... is this behaviour only bugging me ? I find that sooo annoying ... – snaileater Jun 25 '19 at 13:50

Add a paragraph break to the HTML Map Tip text

Open Layer Properties > Display and type <p> in the start of HTML Map Tip box.

  • That way you change the content of the tooltip not its positioning (left topmost corner of the tooltip remain under the cursor ...) – snaileater Jul 26 '19 at 12:13
