GeoPlan Properties - Auto Labels and Tooltips Page

Use this page to set how the auto labels on the GeoPlan view are displayed. Label size and font can be changed.

See Displaying Labels on the GeoPlan for more details on GeoPlan labels. It is also possible to use and customise tooltips so that the desired information is displayed to the user when an object is hovered over on the GeoPlan.


Editing or setting up custom labels may have an impact on tooltips.

Select the font for the auto labels.


Select the size for the auto labels.

Maintain font size at all scales

Check this option so that the font size is fixed regardless of the current zoom level /map scale.

The Scale for this font size box shows the current zoom/scale value and can be edited.

Colour as Thematic

Check this option to display the label in the same colour as the network object's currently active theme.

The label will be coloured in accordance with the network object current theme as defined in the object Layer Theme editor of that object (accessible by clicking on the Edit button of the Theme column in the GeoPlan Properties - Layers and Themes Page).

When running a simulation, the theme value and colour will update at each replay timestep if this option is set.

Note that theme coloured labels will not be drawn for objects displayed at very low visibility.

Hide 0% visibility labels

Check this option to prevent drawing of a label if its network object is not visible on the GeoPlan Window due to theme settings.

Suppress Clashing Labels

Check this option to prevent drawing of a label if it will be placed on top of another label. You cannot control which labels are hidden by this process.

Rotate Link Labels

Check this option to align link labels along the line of the link.

Note: this option does not support multiline text in Custom Auto Labels; text will all be displayed on a single line.

Offset Labels

Check this option to draw the labels to the side of the network object.

If this option is unchecked, labels will be drawn on top of the object.

Link End Labels

Select the parameter to be displayed at upstream and downstream link ends.

Link end labels are always displayed rotated along the line of the link.
