Hi Dale;

   Seems to be working OK for me here in PB 2017 R2 build 1769 ...

Thanks Chris.  Good to know it's fixed in 1769.  Just have to wait for the patch version to be published as apposed to the uninstall and reinstall route. I hope.

Interesting.  After downloading and installing 1769, the problem persisted.  He wanted the text to write downward. I helped him do some testing and discovered NativePDF does not like negative numbers for the escapement value.  (eg -900)   So setting them to 2700 gave the rotation he wanted, but the positioning of the text was off (pivots around a different point? ).  So, Distilled accepts negative numbers, NativePDF does not. Yet.  While there is a simple workaround. Still could be considered a "bug".  Especially for those migrating existing apps and moving away from Distillers and wanting to use the NativePDF.
