Rotate text inside a widget

Hi, i’m looking for a way to rotate the text. I cannot find it in Axure 9.

Hello! Text rotation has been removed as a separate property. You can rotate the widget containing the text, or add a separate text widget with no border, if it needs to be at a different rotation than the background widget.

That’s a shame. I used it a lot.

Could you provide an example of when you were using this feature? Either description of a use case, a file, or a screenshot that we could look at? Thanks!

here is an example. I use the pointers, and I need to point them from different directions. I used to rotate it to the position i need and then to rotate the text back to 0.

Yeah… Miss that too - the workaround just add complexity…
Just to make the example more clear, here is an image where you can see the style editor with the option to rotate the widget, and the text inside it:


Thanks for the images; it sounds like the primary case is around annotating the wireframe for both of you. This is helpful information, thanks!

echoing this as well. Remember Axure offer things like charting flow diagrams, etc. this is useful there as well (my example is the arrow shape. I rotate it to point downwards, and the text is being turned too.
Now I need to:

  1. Remove the original shape text.
  2. add a new text
  3. Center them.
  4. Group them.

Also, it requires me to know ahead what is the horizontal default to decide if to use shape text or not. ahm.



I also liked the text ration. I’m attaching my exampletext%20rotate

Thanks :slight_smile:
