Plant tag text flipping upside down?

Recommended Posts



I just completed a planting plan and I am now formatting my plant tags and something is happening that I've never experienced before. 


I need the tags to read at the orientation of the viewport of my planting plan sheet but when I rotate my drawing and try to organize my plant tags the text for the tag flips upside down and I can't get it to read horizontally left to right in the orientation that I need. 


Is there a way I can get VWX to stop automatically rotating the text?

File Menu:Document Settings:Document Preferences:Display pane.  Make sure Adjust Flipped Text is unchecked.

We fought with something similar in title blocks recently. The workaround at that time was to rotate the text by 0.02 degrees (not 0.01). that was enough to trick the autoflip to ignore those text blocks while not being enough to be noticeable in the overall drawing.


Perhaps you can do something similar in your plant tags.
