How to determine Duct Label insertion angles?

I'm connecting my HVAC diffusers to my duct mains, the duct is placed at random angles along with the duct labels. After the duct and labels are placed, I then rotate and offset the labels to get them back to horizontal and in a location that is readable. Determining the angles to rotate the text back to horizontal is impossible to figure out. Properties does not show anything regarding rotation. How is this suppose to be done?

Hi Jody,

 

You can rotate the Label nodes with the Ucs as
reference instead of the duct angle. Instead of entering an angle enter U (for
Ucs) at the command line in the label rotate command.

 

You can rotate multiple nodes in one single
operation. Use for instance Quick Select in the Property Palette to select all
label nodes and then right click and choose the Rotate Node tool and rotate all
nodes.

 

Hope this helps!
