This does not seem to be a recommended thing but you must have your reasons. Did you select to have labels rotate with plan?

I just read this other post and you might be having a similar issue: https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/index.php?/topic/9405-upside-down-callouts/

P.S. Have you customized your room label defaults in any way?

I need to get this to my contractor PDQ.

 Did you try to attach something?  If so, it didn't attach.

No I didn't I just had to get it to him as is.  Here is the plan.  I would really like to have the room labels rotate (I needed to rotate the plan view  in Layout as it wouldn't fit to the paper) but not the door and window labels.

Thanks

I believe the issue you're experiencing should be considered a bug.  When you uncheck "rotate with plan", the text itself stays put, but the center points of the 2 pieces of the label do NOT.  I think it should be submitted to tech support.  Due to the unique nature of those automatic 2-piece labels they need some programming added so that the center points of both pieces of the label recognize plan rotation. 

 

In the meantime, you might consider just using a Rich Text box with the appropriate macros...

 

%room.name%

%room.dimensions%

%room.area.internal%

 

That way all that text can be in a single box (which will rotate properly). PLUS, as an added benefit (using Rich Text instead of standard text) you can format the different items on a line by line basis.

Thanks Michael I'll submit it.  Strange that at one point it rotated okay.

I submitted it to tech support.  If I look at the room label it appears as if both the room name and size have rotated but are now on top of each other.

Ya. That's what I was saying. Those room labels are 2 piece labels. The text in both pieces is rotating just fine. What's NOT rotating is the center points or rotation point of those 2 "text boxes". If you made the main room label 10 or 20 lines long for example and then rotate, it becomes more apparent what's going on.
