Label will not rotate fully

I've added a new label to a piece of duct. As usual it comes in backwards, reading vertically top to bottom. I'm trying to spin it 180degrees, normally I've never had any problem doing this. For some reason now the text will only rotate -90degrees, reading left to right. Why won't this label rotate 180degrees?

Hi Jody -

Could you post a drawing that won't let you rotate the label 180%%d. I've
tried this a few times and haven't gotten a label that I can't rotate yet
:-(

Not sure if this is the cause, but worth checking.

Slect from the menu Format > Drawin Setup. Under angle make sure the
clockwise box is cleared. At the command prompt, type in ANGBASE and enter 0
if its something else.

If you have other settings, you can get unpredicatable results when rotation
objects by an amout that you enter. This is particularily a problem when the
direction as north and rotaion as clockwise to match north and compass
directions.
