Rotating Text

The Rotate Text (TORIENT) command on the Express Tools Tab or menu rotates text, mtext and attributes using the Insert point as the base point of rotation. The rotation angle can be specified by typing in a number, selecting two points or using the Calculator palette to figure the angle between two points and paste it to the command line in commands like TORIENT. TORIENT also has an option to rotate text to the best most readable angle.
