slope label (label surface) with a rotate grip in the center point

slope label (label surface) with a rotate grip in the center point

Hi.

it would be interesting that the slope label (label surface) had a rotate in the grip of the center. 

Currently, this label has 3 grips, 2 in the ends and one in the center. The grip in the middle is for moving the label to another location, but it would be interesting that we could rotate the label from this grip without calling the rotate command. Sometimes we want to align these labels perpendicular to contours of the surface to show the Maximum slope or waterdrop. In fact, it would be interesting another tool to do this: put the slope label perpendicular to the contours of the selected surface.

 

Thanks in advance.

Even these labels could be "Dynamic". If surface changes then slope labels rotate automatically to be always perpendicular to the contours. If 3 grips of the label would be in 2 or 3 triangles, then the triangle to follow is according to the center grip of the label.

I have been trying with "Rotate" command but I cannnot rotate the slope label.

Even a "scale" parameter to scale the label (arrow length)  from the center point. For example, if we add slope labels perpendicular to to a road (road with 3m width), and we pick 2 points to add the slope label but one of them is outside the TIN triangle, then slope value is "wrong". Instead of moving each edge point of the slope label, if the center point is inside the TIN triangle, we could change a "scale" value in the properties palette.

add parameters (properties): to show in the properties palette.

 

- rotate

- scale

 

for slope label.

- mirror ( to rotate label 180 degrees)
