I would like to label contours in a way where the number of elevation will be on the line but without seeing the line behind the label.I mean I want line-number-continued of line.Do I have to do it by edditing the line,cutting at some points and placing the label there?
I used halo but it makes sth like a buffer around the number so if the background for example is white (in general one colour) that is ok because it covers the line at that point and no prob but if the background is colorful then there is problem because you see also the buffer.
