feature to transform labels possible?
« on: December 08, 2015, 08:42:49 »
@menion

is it possible to add a feature to transform labels for peaks to mapsforge maps themes?
Please see attachment.
(Perhaps someone could my attachment convert to picture here? I can´t because of firewall restictions.)

Thanks

Hi Petr,

I want to transform the names of peaks "around" the node. within a vectormaps (mapsforge) theme.
at the moment  we can use something like:
Code: [Select]
<caption k="name" dy="-30" font-style="bold_italic" font-family="serif" font-size="16" fill="#7F3300"  stroke="#FFFFFF" stroke-width="5.00" scale-font-size="15,1.3" /> 
to show the name above the peak p. e.

it would be nice to transform the  name above and  around as shwon in the attachment .

Regards J.

That might be difficult as long names need to have bigger radius, short names, minimal one.

Radius = number of letters

Also as I found using same themes on different devices gives completely opposite experience.
I read poems and maps.

yes, but  if the name of the node ist  placed on top of the node with "dy=" it´s automaticly centered. My hope ist that you can input a transform value like 90° and the transfom begins in the middle of the name.

I see. Well I've discussed it with menion and he's reject such feature. It's complicated and we can not see any reasonable income. Sorry for that but thank you for idea
