i'm relatively new to qgis. I am using version 2.14.7. I would like to rotate a text label anti-clockwise in map composer but the Rotation settings in Item Properties only allow for clockwise rotation. What do I do?

    I'm not sure I follow, if you want to go, for example, -90 degrees then just use 270.

  • Is this a case that the text appears upside-down when you rotate it? Commented Oct 12, 2016 at 10:47

Figured it out! If I put 360 degrees in the Rotate box to start with then I can rotate anticlockwise from there.
