Hello, just a general question regarding contour labelling. Does it refresh automatically after I modified the labelling setting? My experience is no, but want to see if there is anyone with another answer. Here is what I did, given an existing surface. Go to Surfaces -> Add Surface Labels -> Contour-Multiple at Intervals, I gave a decent internval, labels the entire surface with a few runs. Later on I decided to say hide the contour label lines, so I would go to Settings ->right click on Surface->Contour Labelling Defaults->set Display Contour Label Line to False, click Apply. So this setting will affect all the contour labelling created thereafter, but does it change the contour labels that I already created? If not, how can I change those labels?
Solved! Go to Solution.
No, that setting will not effect existing labels.
To modify the existing labels, select one of them, right-click and select similar. Or, use QSELECT to select all surface contour label groups. Then go to your properties and change the setting for 'display contour label line' to 'false'.
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
Thank you very much. Another question. Is there any way in the Surface Styles setting to automatically display the contour elevation without going through the surface labelling process?

No. Surface styles will not display any text at all (with the exception of watersheds).
