several labels = overlap

0 votes

what I managed to do is to display two lables on one node, the default label + a second label based on a custom property containing some description. What I want to do now is to show the description label next to the node while the default label is centered in the node. I know how to do this manually but for 100+ nodes this is no fun... Is there a way to bulk update label positions for 2nd, 3rd, ... labels?

You can have *all* node labels placed automatically using "Layout" -> "Label Placement".

You can bulk update all selected labels at once. (Multiple labels can be selected by pressing and holding SHIFT when clicking on a label.)

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to select e.g. all 2nd labels only.
