Rotating components Text Upside Down

#1 Post by sonolink » 20 Jun 2020, 11:54

I just upgraded to v.4 from version
When rotating a component in PCB Layout the label used to stay upright. Now it doesn't. It rotates with the component. Is there a way to configure it to behave like in v.3? Schematic Capture v4 doesn't have this problem.

Yes positioning of PCB component text is very annoying now.
The work-around I have found is to use "Position" instead of the normal justification choices.
With the"Position" selection you can select the reference point and text rotation angle.

This has also made its way into the schematic layout too. If you rotate a netport the voltage is left upside down. On the left is a rotated netport with upside down text. On the right is a unrotated netport.

Diptrace, please please please go back to the way this was for both PCB and schematic.
