Hi, no Mathematica can't "really" rotate anything, you have to turn you head or to rotate your monitor. May be, that something like Block[{$DisplayFunction = Identity}, gr = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi}, Frame -> False, Axes -> True, AxesLabel -> {"Hello", "real rotation"}] ]; Show[FullGraphics[gr] /. Text["Hello", pos_, ___] :> Table[Text["Hello", pos, {0, 0}, {Cos[phi], Sin[phi]}], {phi, 0, 2Pi, Pi/4}] /. Text["real rotation", pos_, ___] :> Table[Text["real rotation", pos, {0, 0}, {Cos[phi], Sin[phi]}], {phi, 0, 2Pi, Pi/4}], PlotRange -> All] help you Regards Jens Stewart Mandell wrote: > > Is it possible to have horizontal tick axes labels "really" rotated 90 > degrees. > i.e. "Hello" rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise about its right-center > anchor > point. > > thank you
