I have just discovered that Spot Elevation text is mesbehaving in rotated dependant views:
If you have an orthogonal parent plan view, then create a dependant view from it, then rotate just that dependant view, then place a spot elevation - the spot elevation symbol respects the rotation of the view (ie its paralel to screen/view boundary), but the spot elevation text remains in the orientation of the parent view. see attached image.
This does not happen if you rotate a normal Revit plan view; nor does it happen with a callout - both cases the symbol and the text are parallel to the view boundary. I think this is a bug?
Just to clarify this question I have attached the Revit project file to demonstrate the problem. The workflow to recreate this is simple:
I had this problem on v2012 & 2013 (probably earlier), but sadly no fix yet. I've formally reprted it to Autodesk and I believe that it is now in the system registered as a bug to be fixed. I've heard from other people who have also had this problem, so the more people who report it as a bug, the better chance it has of being addressed sooner.
