I have an airport symbol and below that I want to show the label for the airport identifier. Because I want to keep a proportional distance between the label and the symbol at different zoom levels, I used and offset as 'Meters at scale', set the symbol to be 'offset from point', on the lower quadrant, and offset 8000 on the y axis.
With zero offset on the y, the label shows over the airport symbol. With 8000 on the y it moves up. However with -8000 the label remains in the same place. It doesn't move down as I would expect.
How can I properly make the label show below the SVG symbol, and remain there at different zoom levels?
