Civil 3D COGO point labels get skewed in 3D modelspace after rotating it

Hi there,


I noticed that Civil 3D COGO point labels get skewed in 3D model space after rotating the label using the COGO point grip. When text is randomly rotated it makes it hard to read it in 3D view. In the image below thea are text that is oriented the correct way (up along the Z axis). But there are several points indicated by the red arrows that are skewed.


It seems that when I rotate the point label using the COGO point grip the label rotates in 3D. I would like it to always be oriented up based on UCS. Here's a video showing when/how the issue happens: 


I fiddled with all the available point label settings but didn't get the desired result.



Does anyone know how to resolve this? Thanks!
