    Thats quite possible using a simple dynamic block. I can post an example if needed.

    When you go to insert the block skip the rotation option that you get in the insert dialog box. Instead you would set the rotation via the properties window (which can be set before you even place it) or simply use the grip to set it after being placed to whatever angle you desire.

    You can take a look at the dynamic block in the block editor to see how it's put together so you can create your own.

    It not doing what I was tring to do. I want the text inside the square like you have. But the thing im tying to do is when you rotate it in any angle no matter what the text defaults to 0.

    You're not using the rotate command on that block are you? You have to use either the grip or the properties window (the angle field under custom, not the rotation field under misc) or else the text is going to rotate.

    If it's not that then I must be confused as to what you are wanting then. Because that should do it.

    At my old job If you make a block the text in side the block will always be at 0 when you check select orientation at any angle you put that block the text will always be at zero understand now.
