Can I vertically orient the text of complex text logs in Strater?

Yes, you can do this in Strater. 
  1. Select the text log.
  2. In the Property Manager, click the Label tab (Complex Text Log tab in Strater 2 and 3).
  3. Set the Label angle (Angle in Strater 2 and 3) to 90 or 270, depending on how you want the text to read.


There is not a way in Strater 1 to vertically align the text in the complex text log. If you are using Strater 1, you could either:

  • Upgrade to Strater 5.
  • Change the text of the complex text log to invisible (so you still have the interval divisions) and then create a post log showing the keyword text and an invisible symbol.
  • Create a zone bar log and show the keyword text without the fill properties. Both post and zone bar logs allow you to change the orientation of the keyword text to make it vertical.
