This comes up from time to time. You want wire numbers for vertical wires to come in automatically rotated 90 degrees so that the wire number lays along the wire. To do: 1. Determine the schematic symbol library in use and open drawing "wd_wnv.dwg" in AutoCAD. 2. Rotate the WIRENO attribute 90 degrees (you can use the AcadE "rotate wire number" cmd if you'd like) 3. Save 4. Open drawing "wd_wcv.dwg". Repeat steps 2 and 3. That's it. Wire numbers for new drawings will come in auto-rotated.

It would be nice to have a Rotate Wire Number (Rotate Attribute) command located next to the flip and toggle (in-line) icons in the Ribbon.
