Tringle Point Up

The default triangle shape points to the right. I can rotate it, but the text is aligned to the triangle orientation. What’s the best workflow for creating a triangle it’s base at the bottom and the apex at the top with horizontal text? Thanks.

Update: I see the solution. I have to create a new shape (not from the stencils). Then drag my triangle onto the screen.

There are some other options:

You can rotate the text within the shape using the controls in the Text Position inspector. This can be tricky, though; you’ll probably have to tinker with the offsets to get the text where you want it.

A much easier way is simply to create a separate text object, position it, and group it with the shape.
