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.
