Does the Style setting Plan Readability work for General Notes? I've been thinking we should use notes for all our text so that they react the same as all the other Civil 3D labels. But they don't seem to. They scale correctly but stay parallel to the UCS.
I've tried this in a fresh drawing from a simple template and from an OOTB template. They never rotate in a layout. Is this the normal behavior or am I missing a setting? This is how I have it set in my style:
Civil 3D 2012 SP 2.1
Dell Precision T7400, Xeon CPU 3.16 GHz
Win 7 Pro, 64-bit,12 GB RAM, Nvidia Quadro FX 4600

In that editor you show change behavior > orientation reference to view. The notes will rotate to your view in paper space then.
Worked like a charm. Now that I've been shown it I understand what the difference is. I was looking at my parcel label styles and they are [of course] set to object. Thanks for clearing that up.
Changing orientation reference to view should work.
I was planning on using notes for our text also and ran into a big problem.
If you try to copy & paste into another drawing the note reverts back to default NOTE.
I was reading a thread from years ago by Sync (R.I.P.) and in that thread he explains
his frustration with attempting to copy these notes from one drawing to another.
I gave up for now on that idea. I'll follow your thread for any insite that may help us.
Yes. I was aware of that. I don't think it would be a deal breaker in our case.
Maybe it's time for a 3rd party programmer to tackle this. Hint Hint !
