Forcing Horizontal Instrument Text for rotameter with flow direction

Im trying to keep to Type/Loop number target properties horizontal while shifting the block in the direction of the flow.  The only other way I can seem to accomplish this is by adding an Field Discrete Ins. bubble as an annotation of the flowmeter itself.  Any ideas?

This unfortunately is a known issue and has been reported to the development team. The way you could work around this is to create an alternate flowmeter in the vertical position and have the text placed in the horizontal position. I am sorry I could not provide an easier solution at this time.
