    I can't seem to be able to rotate text boxes anymore in CAD view - any ideas? thanks

    (Have used the rotate option but it now seems to keep the text horizontal and just move the text box around)

    You've enabled the "Align to View" option for the Text objects you can no longer rotate. This option is found in a Text object's Properties; when enabled, it will cause that Text object to always be visible or "facing the camera" (in Wireframe, of course), regardless of View (i.e. Plan, Side, Isometric, etc.). When Rotation is performed on a Text object with the "Align to View" option enabled, the rotation IS applied, but (since this option is enabled), the Text object cannot be displayed as such in the Wireframe; it can be said that the two are mutually exclusive. Disabling the "Align to View" option will cause the Text object to be displayed rotated.


    Hth,
