Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted, though if you’ve seen my Twitter feed you will understand why…yes, I am now a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society & Istitute of British Geography.
Thats’s not why you’re reading this though, you are probably reading this, shouting at the screen and calling me a liar, I am not, I have the maps to prove it! I’ll show you through the method below.
Lets consider this map:I want to make it look like the Ordnance Survey Explorer (folded) map(s) and have the map tile names displayed but transparent as not to hide any information. The text is currently being rendered from the layer “1_50000_Tile_finder”. Once I have the text looking similar to how I want it, convert it to annotation.
