Printing: Rotating Overlay Text Orientation

I want to print a landscape of a mountain range that runs north to south. I was just planning on printing a long rectangle running north->south and then just rotating it 90 degrees when I hang it. However, I want to have markets with text on this map and in doing so, the text would all be sideways and look weird.

It would be extremely helpful if there was some way to rotate just the label overlays when printing.

    Thanks for the feedback! I will add your suggestion to our future development board for consideration. In the meantime, you could generate a PDF without labels (before you go click Print to PDF or JPG, set labels to None in the Config menu) and then you could add the labels after using another program such as Adobe Illustrator. That would give you the control over the label orientation that you are looking for!
