Using 3.22.4, I am puzzled with labels in the main map window. When zoomed out to a scale where the labels will conflict with each other, QGIS adds unwanted red labels for those that should be omitted.
As an example, I have 11 closely-placed points labelled SWAKANE_01 through SWAKANE_11. When zoomed out, all 11 labels are printed, and the conflict occurs. When zoomed in, the conflict disappears.
However, when I zoom in to a scale that allows all labels to differentiate, the red labels disappear, and all is as it should be.
I can also make the red labels disappear by shrinking the font size, which makes me assume that this is a label placement conflict, but I am unable to stop it. I have played around with all of the placement and obstacle settings in Layer Styling to no avail.
How to disable the red labels when conflicts occur?
