enter image description hereI have rotated some text labels by -90 in my project. I want them to stand vertically on an alignment bar. If the map window with the alignment bar also has a rotation the text is no longer vertical or horizontal. I am not sure where this text angle is coming from. (Please see picture.) The "3+200.00" is set horizontal and transposes between map windows correctly. The "Dugout 4" is set to -90 and acquires an off-angle somewhere when it transposes to the map window. Does anyone have any idea how to overcome this?

  • Please add the label settings, not the "expression" you use for the rotation. – Erik Jan 7 '20 at 21:31

Use the expression ((-90) - @map_rotation) to account for the rotation applied to the Map canvas.

Note: the Expression Builder's Variables dropdown is a great place to look for other dynamic variables.

  • Mikeoramma Everything looks good on my end, glad it worked out. – OGmaps Jan 8 '20 at 20:00
