Object labels distance and position

Asked by Khalid AlAjaji on 2017-10-20

Stellarium script enables a custom label to be positioned and to have a certain distance from the object.

Can that be done globally for all object names.

Sorry, not currently. Automatic overlap-free label placement is an art in itself which requires keeping track of screen position and size for previous labels and other things. In Stellarium each label stands for itself and does not know about the others, so overlap occurs. Feel free to improve this!
