Rotating a text block is still limited to 0, 90, 180 and 270 degree angles. More precise control needs to be added, similar to the way components can be rotated. See this thread for an example of one user's requirements and the very involved work-around needed to overcome this missing DipTrace feature - http://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11347

I'd like to encourage the implementation of this feature.

Also, while addressing text rotation, please take a look at the rotation of reference designators in the PCB Layout editor. Currently the orientation of reference designators is limited to 2 directions. It would be helpful to have full rotation control of these guys, especially when working on a tight board. If unrestricted rotation of reference designators is not feasible, then adding at least 4 directions (0, 90, 180, 270), that could be toggled through, would help.

I agree. I'd also like to see this feature implemented.

I especially agree on the reference designators. I've never understood why I can rotate text blocks to 0, 90, 180, and 270, but the designators?
I also agree allowing for custom angles would be very useful.
