Lake names not shown on vector maps

Issue #388 closed
grums created an issue

Seen on maps from several sources on Windows 8.1 + QMapShack 1.11.1

To reproduce, look at any Garmin-compatible vector map displaying the name of a lake on a GPS unit, or generate a very small OpenFietsMap Lite map on

  • Select Routable Bicycle (Openfietsmap Lite)
  • Check Enable manual tile selection
  • Select the segment containing Banyoles (when zooming in it will appear in NE Spain just north of Girona)
  • Enter your email address
  • Press Build my map
  • Download the map when notified by email

On a gps unit (and OruxMaps) the map (at a certain zoom level) will show the name of Estany de Banyoles (just west of Banyoles), it is not shown using QMapShack.

    Strings of polygones are not shown by purpose. Some maps contain a lot of bogus strings that would spam the map. However the name is shown if you have menu->View->Map Tool Tip (Crtl+I) enabled.
