Wall Tags

Why is it so difficult to place a Wall Tag/label  with this sort of readable orientation?

How are you doing it?  What Label are you using ?

This can work. Note the Label Orientation is set to Custom Angle, although the angle itself does not matter.

what I've learned is that AC walls like to be drawn in a clockwise orientation. when I'm tagging walls I turn the wall reference vectors on and use the "Invert Wall Direction" and or "Modify Wall Reference Line" to mirror in place. I do this instead of trying to make the labels do too many gymnastics. The only downside to this is to try and do this before you have too many dimensions set. They'll require attention as well.

Thanks.  That works easy enough. I was having a difficult time getting that specific orientation with the other Labels I was using.  Composite Profile Name 25 and Property Label 25.  Not sure why I was not using the NCS Wall Label.  I usually do.
