Rotating dimension text

Post by debenriver » Sun Apr 21, 2019 7:34 pm

Hi Eric

Happy Easter!!

With the measuring tool, I wonder if it is possible have an option with the 'Rotate text' facility to rotate the text to be either parallel to the dimension line (the current default) or at 90º to the dimension line. In the image below, the text in dimensions on the right are not rotated; those in the centre are rotated – but those on the left have to be made individually. It would be great if you could just select for the text to be at 90º to the dimension line too.

Bonjour George,

The options for the text could be:
- horizontal
- parallel
- perpendicular.
