How do you rotate the text in a dimension in the drawing workspace?

Look at the attached screen shot.  I want the vertical dimension text ("9" in this case) to be oriented horizontal, not vertical.  I've searched to find out how to do this, and the only mention I can find is from 2016 (which says it's not possible in an ISO formatted drawing), and surely this has been fixed by now.  Please tell me how to reorient the text.

The fact you cannot rotate the text is the same as is was in 2016, sorry.

Thanks for the reply. 

Autodesk :::   Please add this feature to the drawing workspace.

Autodesk have stuck to the rules of the ISO and ANSI standards with no way to override. Personally don't like the ISO standard and I think that's the one you're using, try one of  the ANSI templates. You will not be able to change existing drawings.

In the attached image I have vertical dimensions that are completely messed up. It happens all the time with any sketch. That's not wright according to ANY standard, this is just a stupid bug. We are still in desperate need for the rotate/flip dimension text function and that has nothing in common with any standards. If I'd show my colleagues this drawing, they'd laugh. I can make better drawings in AI or Corel!

You are showing modeling sketch dimensions not dimensions in a 2D Drawing.  These do not follow any particular standard as 2D Drawing dimension would.  Model sketch dimensions are placed according to the order the sketch entities are selected.

Hi,

As  @jhackney1972 said, your screenshot also shows the dimensioning of a sketch in design mode, which does not have to comply with the standards (ASME, ISO...) like the dimensioning in a derived drawing.
