Problem rotating silkscreen name for resistor



I have attached a screenshot of a layout I'm making of a circular PCB where I want the label for all the resistors around the circumference of the PCB to face inwards towards the resistor so the look is consistent (i.e. R7-R12)


However, when I manually try to rotate the highlighted resistors (R2 -R6) to face inwards, they automatically flip back outwards. I have tried rotating the labels several times but I cannot get them to face towards the actual resistor. 


Is there a way to force the resistors to face in an orientation where they face inwards towards the resistor rather than outwards towards the edge of the PCB?

Hi @paul.morrow ,


I hope you're doing well. Set the spin parameter on that text, that will force it to stay in whatever orientation you set it to be. Click on the text and look in the inspector. You'll see a checkbox that says Spin make sure it's checked.


Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
