      I’d like to confirm that it is not possible to know the angle of an oriented view within GDL. It would be valuable to know it.

      The “view_rotangle” request option can return that angle:
      REQUEST (“view_rotangle”, “”, angleViewRotation)
      See Requests in GDL manual.
      We already use it for always readable texts, see this post in Tips&Tricks.
      Hope it helps.

      Thank you very much, glad I asked. The only way (besides this forum) I have to see if something is possible in GDL is to search the manual for the name of the feature. Unfortunately I couldn’t find this request because the term “oriented view” isn’t in the description. It would be good when updating documentation to make sure that there is a clear connection between the user-facing feature and the GDL documentation. Thanks again. The responsiveness of the library team here has been great.

        We extended the request description with the keyword here on the site, thanks for finding this inconsistency.
        Please, check the search option again, hope it lists this feature now.

      That works on the site, thanks. My first search is still in the GDL Manual.
