There are some features that I would like to label but are greater in area than just points.
Forest fire burn scars for instance. A single point is insufficient. I'd like to distribute
"burn scar" as a label here and there.
Sometimes you just want a text label for some info "Private Property", "Dense deadfall",
"Swamp", you know, a miscellaneous text box with the border and fill characteristics
like you're using for other objects.

    Thanks. Some kind of free-form text label is on the to-do list (no estimated completion date though). But for most of what you're describing, it sounds like a labeled polygon (which I already have) would work well?

    I am a "pro" subscriber and loving it! I would really like a free-form text label feature as well. Some ability to control font size and text block width (with line-wrapping) would be great. It would also be nice if you could specify at which zoom level the text appears, although for my own printing purposes, I could put the text blocks into a folder and turn its visibility on or off as needed.
