Symbols & Text Rotation/Flipping

Recommended Posts

I would like to create a symbol where the text is always aligned to the rotation of the symbol without flipping if I rotate it motor than 90º. In the attached image, A is the original symbol with a rotation of 0º, B is the symbol rotated 90º and C has been rotated 93º but he text has flipped. How can I prevent the text from flipping so the it remains in the orientation in example B? Thanks!Untitled.pdf

Is the text in the symbol linked to data or is it static?


If static:  Edit 2D component > select text > Text > Convert Text to Polylines.  You'll end up with a group of closed poly lines.  Set the fill color of the group to black.


Now it will treat the "text" as regular geometry.
