Q - question

Always horizontally readable text in rotated viewports.

A - answer The AutoCAD 2008 (and higher) family applications can easily set text entities (Text, MText) so that they are displayed always horizontally (legible, with horizontal alignment) even in rotated viewports.

Just set the entity properties - enable the Annotative and then the Match orientation to layout property. That's all. The given text will be then displayed horizontaly.
