Fancy little trick
« on: March 12, 2004, 12:21:34 PM »
Think this feature might be in 2k2, but I forget. Anyway, I often see questions on BB's such as this one about rotating attributes in blocks. Well, I had a need to do this just now and thought it would be a good idea to share my findings. I mirrored a block and the text came in upside down and backwards. I double-clicked it to get to the EATTEDIT dialog. Under Text Options tab you can change a great deal of things to the attribute in question. There are two toggle buttons that allow you to flip and mirror the attribute. These two options did the trick, but what if I should need to rotate the text 30 degrees? There's a rotation text field. You can rotate it if you want. Have fun.
