Label

A Label is text within a rectangular boundingbox. The halign and valign attributes always refer to unrotated horizontal and vertical. This is different from text, where alignment is relative to text flow direction.

A Label's size is known, so if tellwidth and tellheight are set to true (the default values) a GridLayout with Auto column or row sizes can shrink to fit.

using CairoMakie

fig = Figure()

fig[1:2, 1:3] = [Axis(fig) for _ in 1:6]

supertitle = Label(fig[0, :], "Six plots", textsize = 30)

sideinfo = Label(fig[2:3, 0], "This text is vertical", rotation = pi/2)

Justification and lineheight of a label can be controlled just like with normal text.

using CairoMakie

f = Figure()

Label(f[1, 1],
    "Left Justified\nMultiline\nLabel\nLineheight 0.9",
    justification = :left,
    lineheight = 0.9
)
Label(f[1, 2],
    "Center Justified\nMultiline\nLabel\nLineheight 1.1",
    justification = :center,
    lineheight = 1.1
)
Label(f[1, 3],
    "Right Justified\nMultiline\nLabel\nLineheight 1.3",
    justification = :right,
    lineheight = 1.3
)
