Description

It would be nice (although possibly quite difficult!) to have an option for curved labels on polygon layers. e.g. see the labels for China and Nepal in this map. https://trac.osgeo.org/qgis/attachment/ticket/3481/asia_map.jpg

This is called "splining" by ESRI. I agree that this is a good enhancement not only for polygon features but also for polyline features. This is a must for snaking rivers, curved roads, and oblong polygon features.

The "new" labelling engine can already do curved labels for polylines.
