Q - question

How to make rotated texts and block attributes "readable"?

A - answer If you rotate drawing texts and blocks with text attributes, some of the texts may stay in an 'unreadable' position (upside-down, upside-right).

The Express Tool TORIENT (Express > Text > Rotate text) can automatically align such texts (or attributes) to be readable. Just select the objects and confirm the default "Most readable" option.
