SolvedCharacter Name Labels

Hi Folks,

This is probably not a bug but I cannot find a way to fix this issue.

I was playing my campaign as normal when I experienced a power cut at home. When the power came back on - I found that Steam was showing the game was uninstalled (this is not the issue.)

I clicked to reinstall and pointed it at the SSD where the game was originally installed and it found the game files and after a few minutes, I could play again.

However, I have the names of characters now showing up on my campaign map and for the life of me, I cannot turn them off. I've looked everywhere in the options and cannot see a way to disable them. I can disable all labels by using CTRL+T but that hides my settlement names too.

I know - not a bug - but it's annoying and i'm hoping someone knows how turn them off.

I've attached a screenshot of what I mean.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Managed to fix this issue - if you press space on the campaign map - you get the overlays option - there is a toggle at the bottom which allows you to turn character name labels off.
