Missing labels on printing

I created a map awhile back with different tracks for a multi-day hike outing. I labeled each track and printed it and all was well, all of the labels came through. I subsequently edited the map to make some route corrects. Now 3 of the labels won't print even though they still show in the general view. I have Show All Labels selected in Configuration and all the tracks and labels show on the left of the screen.

Here is the map, it's Day 3 and Day 4 options 1 and 2 that don;t print.

    It doesn't look like there's anything wrong with them; see https://caltopo.com/p/5T2C

    Since PDF labels are drawn along the length of the line, the line's curviness as well as the PDF's scale will affect where they can be placed (and whether they'll show up at all). I'm guessing the scale is different (ie shrinking the lines down), you made the lines more precise, or the labels longer.

    If you just name the line "Day 3", will it print?

    Thanks for the tip Matt. I shortened the labels and added the extra to a couple of markers and all is fine.
