    Rotate text box

    I'm just starting to use MapPoint and I cannot find a way to rotate a text box. My reason is the streets appear but I'm not able to zoom in enough to see all the street names and still have my boundaries print. If I was able to rotate the text box to the direction of the street everything would look better. Is this possible?

    You can't - both text boxes and pushpin balloons have to be east-west aligned.
