Is there a setting to turn off labels within a polygon in an Atlas?
In the example below I don't want labels to show in the grey inset area.
I have tried the new clipping functionality
All the label data to be clipped is in the chosen file DSC_Point_Symbology
The AOI (grey area) is defined as follows so that any area in a map frame that's not the current AOI is covered.
It's only the labels in the grey area that should not be shown, the labels from the same data should be shown in the other areas. The symbol should be shown in all areas.
I am using QGIS 3.22
I have checked Removing labels from area that is also shown on inset map using QGIS and as zoom level and the input features are relatively dynamic having to process all the labels separately seems inefficient.
Can a polygon from the map be selected in the Label Settings -> Placement -> Label Blocking items?
UPDATE as per @Pieter's response.
The labels don't show now anywhere in the map (blue highlight compared to previous screengrab). They should only be removed from the grey area.
Example and notes
This is just a quick example with some training data, packed using QPackage.
See map 7 and 12. 12 is a small area of map 7 but as the features are complex in it, I want it covered and the labels under it to not show. The labels should show in the rest of the map.
So in the zoomed out map (7) all the labels (yellow highlight) in the grey section should not show but they must be visible in the rest of the map.
I'd say we need to forget about the atlas initially and see if labels can be clipped / masked by a polygon?
