    Text not rotating way expected in Electrical Terminal Switch Family

    So our office standards (from CAD) for Electrical Switch symbol is a simple letter "S" in ArchiTxt Font, with a line going through it. This simple family shows correctly in 2 orientations, but in the other 2, for some reason the letter "S" does not get rotated, and is just moved on other side of all. Any ideas of how to make it work properly?

    It gets a lot more wacky when you get to 2 pole switches. I attached a screen shot.

    What you want to get is possible. But, you would need to modify all the electrical symbols that show text, which is time consuming. It requires two versions of the annotation part of the electrical fixture family. Say A and B. In the project, after inserting the symbol, you can choose to show A or B.
