Summary0001347: Set Label Orientation
DescriptionOption to set Label orientation for Greek letters, constellation names, etc.
Some star maps need to be created in the landscape orientation and the labels are misaligned when doing so.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a star map that requires a landscape capture of the sky and labels, but the labels need to be oriented so that the up/down is on the horizontal plane in portrait view. Selecting a specific angle for the labels (Greek, names) would facilitate precision mapping.
TagsNo tags attached.

It is possible to add an option for the label orientation but I am not sure to understand why you need it.
To be sure to make it right can you upload here (in the "Upload file" section) a photoshoped map that show what you need?

Hi, I include a portrait capture with some Greek labels rotated by Photoshop. I am creating maps for historical research and to submit documentation I need to present detailed maps with Greek letters fully showing at the orientation desired. The portrait and landscape capture options place the Greek labels vertically, but for some drawings I need the map to stay in position as is to maintain an approximation of the correct perspective and number of stars that can be captured without distortion, but I need to adjust the orientation of Greek labels. The size can be controlled, but not the angle or distance from star center. Thanks.
