Right clicking on drawn text and selecting Rotate Entities will let me rotate the position of the text. How do I rotate the text itself?

Two possible solutions, as far as I can tell:
1. Convert the text in question into a block, then rotate the block (don't explode it, or the text will revert to its original orientation).
2. Redesign the part so that the text, as presently oriented, is correctly oriented.

Draw a construction line in the direction you want, then place the text along that line. This way, the line can be dimensioned/rotated/parametrically moved, and not the text itself. There are options to flip the text about the line as well.
I do not recommend making it a block, try to keep everything as parametric as possible at all times. I believe this is the best practice.

Thanks Doug, I just learned something new!
