Turning lettering in layout so it runs parallel with a street

I want to write a street name in layout on an OS map. The street is at an angle, so the question is how do I rotate the lettering it so it runs along the street?
Many thanks

Select the text box after you create it and rotate it with the blue gizmo.

Thank you, but what is the blue gizmo?

The icon in the center when you select the text box.

It’s the little things that make it worth while, thanks a lot


You’re quite welcome.

BTW, that gizmo can be moved to change the center of rotation.

You can also use it to snap one object to another. This can be useful for lining up views of your model in different viewports or lining up things you’ve drawn in Layout.
