Allow Tag's "Rotate with component" as an Instance Parameter

Allow Tag's "Rotate with component" as an Instance Parameter

Allow for Tag families to be able to have the "Rotate with component" option toggled on/off as an Instance Parameter.

 

There should be no reason why we have to create two different tag families just to have them aligned or not to items. Even if it could be tied to a Type parameter that would be better than the current situation.

In most cases an aligned tag will work, but sometimes it's just not what you want to do, or you need to swap it out. Because this option in the family is not something that can be parameterized, you must create two different families to achieve both options.

 

The option is in all tag families and is just in the properties when nothing is selected in the view.

Here's an example of each on an angled duct. Could be a door, wall, etc.
