When using Background on labels I expect it to show one homogeneous background, but instead I get one background per letter. It only occurs when I use "Curved" placement for the label.

Is there a way to solve this issue?

  • Increasing the x size of the background will get you overlapping individual background, it wont look really good but it will look continuous...

  • Workaround : instead of background, choose a buffer around letters and set a great value, it will look round but even curved, it will be filled between letters. Commented May 30, 2022 at 16:02

This effect occurs a lot when using the buffer size type, as each letter doesn't use the same space. You can try to use the fixed size type instead, with an adequate x-y sizing.

Another option could be changing the color to white:

  • Do you mean : changing text color to white, and no background color ? If so, this does not answer your question, which was about labels background set per letter
