Contour Label Directions

Is there a way to change the direction of a Label? I want all my text facing the same direction and some of my Labels for contours are turned the wrong direction.

Click on the contour label and move it over a little bit, it might flip upright.

I tried that. I have to move it to far.

I have never had to do this but if you go into the contour label style editor you can manipulate the settings to achieve the desired results. It may take some trial and error.

You can try turning Plan Readable to False in the Label Style.

You could rotate your cube until the label flips.

In your text style under the General tab, change the Readability Bias to 90.

Turning the Plan Readability off fixed my issue.

 

Thanks everyone.
