Use the most recognized solution for automatic text placement to significantly improve the legibility and readability of text in any language.

Text conversion

  • Case modification
  • Reorganize the word order based on user-defined dictionaries
  • Reconstitute words from abbreviations with a dictionary
  • Replace a part of a character string with another one
  • Text transformation by regular expression
  • Creation of alternate text (shortened version)

Labels

  • Margin around every text to avoid overlapping with other text
  • Minimum and maximum distances in relation to the insertion point with creation of a callout line as an option
  • Series of modifications brought to fit the text to the available room (alternate font, size reduction, abbreviation of the category name, placement on several lines, switch to an alternate characters string)
  • The order of modifications is user-defined and a modification can be forced or ignored
  • Definition of the index entry
  • Labels aggregation

Text on lines

  • Spacing and gap parameters to distribute text on its supporting curve
  • Boundary angle to avoid text placement
  • Priority in relation to other texts placed on the curve
  • Text positioning condition according to the length of the curve
  • Series of modifications brought to fit the text to the available room (alternate font, size reduction, abbreviation of the category name, placement on several lines, switch to an alternate characters string)
  • The order of modifications is user-defined and a modification can be forced or ignored

Text in areas

  • Creation of a supporting median line to place the text along
  • Create both text at an insertion point and text on curve
  • Reduced text option when the shape becomes too narrow
  • Parameter to manage the repetition of flat text inside areas
  • Option to place text taking into account the surface of areas (single text, no text or text repetition)
  • Replacing an area by a text (surface filter)

House numbering

  • Distance between two house numbers
  • Max distance from the intersection (crossings or “T” intersections)
  • Priority in relation to other texts on curve, flat texts and symbols
  • Distance from the building edge
  • Orientation inside buildings
  • Placement on the reference road (the road used for the address of the building)
  • Identification of features for which you want to place house numbers
