To add a label, click the label Add label icon, place the element with the left mouse button on the Print Composer canvas and position and customize its appearance in the label Item Properties panel.

Label Item Properties Panel

Propiedades principales

  • The main properties dialog is where the text (HTML or not) or the expression needed to fill the label is added to the Composer canvas.
  • Las etiquetas pueden ser interpretadas como código HTML: check checkbox Representar como HTML. Ahora puede insertar una URL, una imagen seleccionable que enlaza a una página web o algo más complejo.

  • You can also insert an expression. Click on [Insert an expression] to open a new dialog. Build an expression by clicking the functions available in the left side of the panel. Two special categories can be useful, particularly associated with the atlas functionality: geometry and records functions. At the bottom, a preview of the expression is shown.


  • Define Font by clicking on the [Font...] button or a Font color selecting a color using the color selection tool.
  • You can specify different horizontal and vertical margins in mm. This is the margin from the edge of the composer item. The label can be positioned outside the bounds of the label e.g. to align label items with other items. In this case you have to use negative values for the margin.
  • Using the Alignment is another way to position your label. Note that when e.g. using the Horizontal alignment in radioButtonOn Center Position the Horizontal margin feature is disabled.
