Custom Object with Editable Label


I am trying to make custom objects for appliances, and I can't figure out how to save the objects with a label that can be edited and "always readable." See example below. I modeled the range and made it appear as I wished in 2D and 3D, and in 2D, I added a label to say "48" Range", but if the stove gets upside-down from how I drew it, the words are upside-down as well. Any advice?

Is that scripted text (in the 2D script) or just text you have placed in the 2D symbol?


It needs to be scripted text and you will need something like ROT2 -SYMB_ROTANGLE to undo the object rotation.
