I have a shapefile with line features and an attribute table with placenames. Most lines are horizontal and they all represent label positions (orientation, length, location) on older, printed maps.
These placenames make the most sense if they are placed where they were on the actual plrinted map. I have been searching for a way to use the attributes to generate labeles that would mimic the printed version as much as possible, but have been unable to find a way to stretch (and keep them stretched as such on all scales) labels from one end of the line feature to the other.
I have attempted several combinations of Label settings, as well as expressions to determine the position, but most solutions seem to be missing the strecth to line length feature.
