Feature request #12041
Keep map labels horizontal on canvas
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|

This feature request is to keep labels horizontal on canvases with rotated maps.
For example, see the output from ArcGIS 10.0 (Data Frame Properties > General > Rotation > 30):
With the canvas composer of QGIS 2.6.1-Brighton, each map can have a rotation, for example 30.0° and 60.0°:
However, see that the labels have also rotated by the map rotation quantities. This feature request is to keep them horizontal with the map canvas.
Note there are other items that users may also want to rotate or not, such as symbols. With the above example, the default behaviour is the same between ArcGIS and QGIS. However, I know there is some deep registry setting for ArcGIS to change this behaviour. I'm less concerned about symbol rotation for this enhancement ticket, but thought it should be known.
