Text displayed vertically (or rotate elements)
« on: August 10, 2017, 06:35:32 pm »
Hi,

It would be useful to display an element's title in a diagram vertically, or rotate an element by 90.
Being a possible future request, I wonder if this sounds feasible for Sparx in a future EA build.

Thanks
Guillaume

I guess this has been asked for a 100 times in the past years. That might give you an impression on the feasibility.

Just to provide context to qwerty's answer see this post and the associated thread from EA version 8.
(its a bit of a blast from the past)

Oh. The whole wish list. How much of it did make it? 2 percent?
