Hi

Can I put forward a feature request to enable SLD files created by QGIS to store label styles?

Thanks

Steve

What is the use of saving a style to SLD if you cannot even save the label - The label is part of the style and is a crucial component of styling maps. This issue is now over a year old. When will someone start on this? And while you guys pay attention to this also make it possible for labels to be stored per rules, so, <se:TextSymbolizer> under <se:Rule> - See: #3843

qgis development is mainly user-necessity driven, if this feature/aspect of sld symbology is a must for you organization you could consider supporting its development. Cheers!

Oh my, glaring oversight here.

I'd like to add my vote to this feature. I'm using Qgis, and exporting my styles for use on Geoserver. Would be very helpful if the SLD export feature was completed.

This is a nice issue where I'm working on now:
1. SLD from QGIS is not really compatible in Geoserver
2. Labels in SLD's are just a new feature.

So, first I want to focus on the export of the SLD from QGIS in to Geoserver.

from the first of 1 july this summer I have time to work on this plugin. If you want to participate in development also, I can fork the code of the plugin on my own Github. But ok... later I will dive in this. Purpose is to:
- define layers in QGIS
- export styling from QGIS in Geoserver
- Serve tiles from Geoserver in to CesiumJS for 3D

Hi Richard, I'm also looking into this (and we'll probably discuss this ticket at the FOSS4G code sprint in Bonn). Not sure why you define export "a plugin", shouldn't it be a core functionality included in the normal SLD export?

At first this needs to be an issue to track on the QGIS project. Who can create this?
