QGIS 3.8, Win 10. I have labels that are connected with the points they represent with a leader-line. The line is generated with geometry generator (going from the point-layer to the position where I placed the labels manually):
make_line(make_point($x,$y), make_point( "auxiliary_storage_labeling_positionx" , "auxiliary_storage_labeling_positiony" ))
The line sometimes continues below the label. How is it possible to shorten the line so that it stops when it touches the label? I tried to mask it with text-buffers. However, this is not an option here (see the link to see why). Changing horizontal/vertical alignement is also no option since I have labels clockwise around a circle - so if it would fix the problem for some of the labels, the problem would consist on the opposit site.
I tried the expression
extend with negative value, but it seems it accepts only positive values, making the line longer. I look for a function that is a counterpart-expression (someting like shorten) - how to achieve this?
