I'm wondering how to set the text of a parameter in a component in a different angle, so different angles have different layouts when you press spacebar? Like what a standard component does in Miscellaneous.IntLib?

This is what I have accomplished so far the text is positioned at the far left always and when I press space it autorotates. Though the position remains in the far left. I want to define the layout to be in the vertical middle position of the component whenever the component is in a vertical position. Like what its done in the native components.

As of Altium 14, you can't really create a position for the text on each angle. What you can do instead is to copy the component from Miscellaneous Devices.IntLib. Though the copying part is not so straightforward. Here is the following steps to copy a resistor from Altium.

  1. Open the file Miscellanenuos Devices.IntLib.
  2. Click on Extract Sources.
  3. Double click the file Miscellaneous Devices.SchLib.
  4. Copy one resistor from SCH Library pane.
  5. Paste it on your schematic library.
