The text appears automatically parallel to dimension but cannot be rotated afterwards

    Sorry I didn't read the question properly, I thought we were talking text in sketch entities.

    Delete the horizontal and vertical constraints on the outline rectangle, then apply a fix constraint to one corner, then drag any of the other corners to rotate.

    Thank you Neil but I see that it works also with ISO, I just missed the option in the "properties" options panel
