I have a custom keyed note in the shape of a pentagon that is tied to a schedule. Anyway, when I rotate the whole view (enlarged bathroom plan) all of the notes that are already placed rotate with the view, and the leaders stay in the same place, and the number inside the pentagon is still oriented correctly, but the pentagon itself is now upside-down. Is there any way to set up the family so that when I rotate the view, the keyed note rotates correctly and maintains it's correct vertical alignment? Any way to group the detail lines that make up the pentagon and set them to a parameter like "keep readable" or something like that?

Please see the attached file which shows the whole view that was rotated, with the keyed notes up-side down, but the leaders and text oriented corretly.

This is probably a family issue.   Did you nest in a detail family?   Detail items all rotate with the rotated view.  But tag elements like linework in keynote tags (keynote tags sub-category) do not rotate and remain 'readable'.
