I use a 'trick' to stop symbols from being displayed as mirrored:
if symb_mirrored then mul2 -1,1
That is part of the 2D script, since it is just a 2D object. However, the object itself will still be mirrored.
You could do the same with symb_rotangle, I would say.
I don't think rotation is a lockable parameter as A, B and ZZYZX are.
I understand I can just do ROT2 -symb_rotangle but I was just curious if there was a way of either setting it to always be 0 or lock it or hide it but from what I can tell, you can't do any unfortunately the rot2 does the trick this time!
SYMB_MIRROR and SYMB_ROTANGLE aren't actually parameters like A, B, ZZYZX, etc.
Therefore you can't LOCK or HIDE them in an object script.
The best you can do is to un-mirror or un-rotate as you have discovered.
