           Summary: [SECTStudio-Fontalizer] Label Rotation on lines, points,
                    polygons does not work
           Product: MapLab
           Version: 3.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: SECT (Studio)

Q1: Can bitmap fonts be rotated? 
If no, than the rotation feature should be greyed out

If yes, the bitmap label is not rotating in preview or in map.

Q2: TrueType font rotation, why isn't it working?
The rotation in the Fontalizer Preview works. however, the rotation is not
applied to the map.

Q3: How do you use the rotation feature?
It does not seem to be clear to me. What is confusing is the Automated check
box. What does it mean to "Automate". From a user point of view the interface
suggests that when you select the checkbox the label should automatically rotate
the label. That seems a little redundant. 

I know in Mapserver that Auto rotation is related to the labels relative
position to other labels that if the label can find space in a rotated manner
that it should rotate the label to what ever the angel of the space is. 

If this is how the automated rotation is suppose to work, than when a user
selects the Automated checkbox than it should grey out the text box and reset
the value to "n/a", "-", or whatever
