When I try to manually place a DataGroup annotation Cell, for annotating a structural column ID for instance, the text always rotates to align with the view and my 45 degree orienation is lost. Other graphic elements within the Cell retain their orientation. I can manually rotate the cell 45 degrees thereafter, but I can't understand why the text will not place rotated.
I would like to annotate a structural column with its ID number displaying on a 45 degree angle.
Annotation Cell graphics place at whatever rotation they are created in and the text aligns with the view. You can create the Cell and graphics at 0°. Then go to the drawing model and rotate the view 45°, using the rotate by 2 points method, then placed the Cell. The annotation Cell will place aligned with the view, so it ends up at a 45° angle. Then rotate the drawing model back to unrotated and the Cell stays at the 45° rotation.
Does BB_ANNOTATE_ALIGN_TO_ELEMENT help?
