Hello Reviters! I'm trying to build a general annotation tag family at the moment, which consists of an arrow linework and a text box. The text is placed on-center of the arrow, and I want the text to rotating along with the arrow when I rotate it within a project. However, for some odd reason, whenever the text is oriented in an angle that isn't within a multiple of 90 degrees, the text box shifts down in relations to the arrow itself. *See attached picture.

The text itself is already set to vertically align to middle, and I have tried setting the text into a group, so that I can change the center of rotation, but the text continues to rotate along a center that is slightly lower that where the center of the text should be. Has anyone ran across this issue? Thanks for your help!

Also, please excuse my post if it is posted in the wrong section of the forums. First time poster here!

Unfortunate, isn't it?  Read post #27

Did you try a vertical align, middle format on that text?

Thanks, WWHub. 

For others searching, this doesn't work for text notes.
