Labels positions are defined by default: top-left, top-center, top-right, middle-left, middle-center, middle-right, bottom-left, bottom-center, and bottom-right.
Labels are displayed according to label rules which are triggered by definite rule conditions, and you can limit rule duration and its priority.
