Annotate text to rotate about its point independent of view

When annotating points in inroads I want the text to rotate about the point with the given offset. When checking the 'view independent' box it does not seem to apply it to the text.   

The idea is to be able to reference the file and have the point annotation be horizontal in multiple views.

This is what I am looking at:

Any solutions for this?

  • In Both SS2 and Ss4, we were able to set our Curve Data Annotation to View Independent and it would stay horizontal for us.

    The offsets only apply during initial placement - it is the offset from the point to the text origin. The text will then only rotate about its origin. The only way to have an offset that seems view independent is so pad the text with spaces or empty lines of text. Fpr point annotation, you would have to have no point descriptions and then make it place the description above the name as its label. But if someone added a description, it would then appear as part of the label.

    To get around this, I believe you can enable extended descriptions and have users only use those.
