It is clearly possible to control text direction within a graphic. The attached
file shows a couple of graphics with two different text directions. But it is
very hard indeed to find from the help index, or indeed anywhere else, how to
change the text direction. This needs to be improved.

no bug, but a request for support

The whole rectangle is rotated by 270°.

Maybe this needs some improvement, at least in the help files.

Agreed that this needs improved documentation. There are two parts to that:
1. Help files should show that text direction of a graphic rotates with graphic.
This should come up under a search of text direction.
2. There needs to be an obvious way of a user telling the difference between a
shape and a rotated shape, and documentation to this.
