[fixed] SHP dysplay name

Post by Sky » Sun Feb 14, 2021 11:36 am

Hello,

with new update i encounter a new problem. I have a SHP file and in previous versions there were name displayed for each SHP poligon, so you can see what it is (e.g. parcel number).
Now there are just poligons without names.
Is this a bug or you have any suggestion how to solve this.

Thanks in advance.

The names and other texts of an SHP file are actually in a separate file with the .dbf extension.
Be sure to have this file.
After that you need to indicate to the application which column of the dbf file to use as the name. This is asked when you import the SHP file.

Yes I have done that, but after application update the labels are not displayed anymore {in previous versions there were no problems}. I would be glad if you can correct that.
I could toggled labels before with placemark-> options-> placemark labels.
Thx.

So you mean you have no labels displayed anymore?

If you have no labels displayed it means that either:
- Your items don't have a name;
- The option "Display labels name" is un-checked (Landmark menu -> Options);
- You're displaying the map with a very large scale zoom.

If you believe it's something else, please send me as much information as possible, like screenshots, example files, files etc that shows the problem so I have something to work on.

Hi,

I uninstall beta version and reinstall stable version. In stable version everything works perfectly. So I assume that there is a problem in beta version. I even found out problem with no label display when I draw an area with name. Try to replicate this. Thx.

I would suggest you to draw an area placemark with some name on map and see if the label is visible. In beta version it is not visible, otherwise in stable version it is OK. You could try with any SHP file too. Let me know if it is working for you. Thx.

Finally some piece of information after 10 messages, it's concerns areas...
So yes I've reproduced the problem, it will be fixed before the official release.
