Aligning Texts Associated with Points

Hi,

It seems like a simple task as well as an elementary feature - but it may not be (or it may be - and I just can't figure it out :) ) - but I would like to adjust the alignment of the text attached to points placed on a map.

In particular the situation/problem is when two points are close enough - that the associated text thus overlaps. So I'd like to adjust the text of one (or both) of the points to give enough space so they are both clear and distinct.

One simple solution (which would solve my immediate need) would be to change the alignment from aligning to the right to one aligning to the left of the point.

I hope this is possible.

I can also foresee that it would also be desirable to simply shift the text up or down by a number of pixels - and perhaps this too is possible.

I hope someone can assist me with this question.

Hi, thanks for good question

ShareMap allows users to move text label around marker on the map. Text is "sticked" to marker so even if you move it far away it is move as close to the label as it possible (in the same direction as the original)

Thats because text that is far away on the closer zoom level, may look very bad on more general view.

Also ShareMap allow to decide which zoom level is minimum - at zoom levels lower that selected text labels will be invisible (because in other case it will overlap each other making reading impossible).

I recorder short screencast to show this features. In case of other questions please let me know.
