I used wrap text on "~" and now I have two lines of text from one attribute field. Is there a way to center that and not just choosing center as the horizontal alignment? QGIS 1.8.
You need to set the alignment with the wrapping properties
Note: This is only in the current dev build not in 1.8.
Not in QGIS 1.8. Multi-line text alignment for labels is a new feature in 1.9 (i.e. upcoming 2.0 release, since 1.9 is not going to be released). Currently, the Change Label Properties dialog (in 1.9) does not include the multi-line properties capable of being set at the layer level.
