    Default How do I auto-align text when rotating a block?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Ok so I'm revamping all of our blocks a work and I need some help with a few of them. I need to find a way to have the text (or attribute) always showng at 0 degrees when the block is at 0, 90, 180 or 270 degrees. To further complicate things, the text (or attribute) needs to be aligned with the block at any non-standard angle, and depending on the angle, the text will have to be facing a different way. here's a picture to clarify:

    Is this possible? Thanks.
