[mkgmap-dev] label rendering

From brad bradhaack at fastmail.com on Sat Dec 1 20:43:54 GMT 2018

I got it figured out for towns/villages to show at a lower resolution.
Road labels still have me puzzled.   I know how to control the 
level/resolution for the road, but how can I get labels at a lower 
resolution, or more labels?
I don't use Basecamp, I use QMapshack and a Garmin Montana.
