Rotate Sketch Text

I know that I've done this before but for the life of me, I can't get it
to work now. I'm trying to emboss some text on a part and need to
rotate the text. The embossing works fine, just not the rotating. No
matter where or how I RMB, I can't seem to find the option to "Rotate
---" anywhere. What simple thing am I missing?

Thanks,
Doug

Think you'll probably need to use an angle dim between the text box and a
construction line if I remember correctly.

Hey Dog on a side note, might want to check your computer's clock. Seems a
bit in the future...

Thanks Larry, that sure isn't what 'Help' said (or what I thought I had to
do last time).  It wasn't pretty, but I managed to walk the test around through
two quadrants, a chunk at a time.

Just went to see what I had done before. I made
the text;

RMB mark adaptive;

made const line Horiz and angle;

made text box line collinear to
angle.

Will rotate around 360° according to
the angle.

Don't remember looking at help on that subject,
maybe I should. <G>

Why not just using the rotate tool?

And what is the need of making it
adaptiv?

Or do I understand something wrong?

Nothing wrong with using the rotate tool, I don't
guess, but a construction line simulates the rotate and
move tools in one shot by using angle and linear dims. I don't know why
adaptive, exactly; I couldn't get the collinear/coincident constraints to work
(over constrained errors) until I made it temporarily adaptive. After placing
the dims, I turned it back off and it still worked okay. Don't use it much, so
I'm not really all that up on it.

Sean,



It must be a combination of my ISP, CST and Netscape 7.  I'm on time here
as far as I can tell... I thought it was you guys.
