How to set the rotation of duct size labels?

The duct size labels are inserted where you have to read them from the left
side of the sheet. Is there anywhere to set them so they can be read from
the right side?

Hi Mike,

Today the labels are rotated different depending on from which end you start
drawing the duct when creating a duct in the Y-direction. I assume that you
always want the label inserted to be read from the right side of the sheet
and not depending on which end you start drawing the duct from (if the duct
is in the Y-direction).

The only setting that exists today is to place all labels "horizontal". It
is defined on the label style. It is possible to rotate multiple labels
though. Select the labels you want to rotate, right click and select Rotate
node. Chose to edit All nodes, select Ucs and angle 90. Selecting all
"wrong" labels can be quite hard and I haven't found any good solutions for
selecting them easily:-(
