I’m using the tagger tool simply to click on lakes (and some rivers) that appear as area features, as well as rivers (appearing as line features) – but only so that the names will appear at all, just to save typing by hand. I’m not looking for a default position relative to the feature. I *always* move names around, change sizes, kerning, etc.
But I’ve also always found that water names are easier to work with when they’re flush left. Using the tagger and changing from centre to flush left is still faster and easier than typing by hand, but I’m hoping that there’s something I’m missing here and that I don’t need that extra step. Thanks!
