Description

The new ability to rotate features in the Map Composer in version 2.2 is great except you cannot enter negative angles. Allowing negative angles would be a good addition because it allows more sensible rotation of text boxes (rotating a text box by 315 degrees is NOT the same as rotating by -45 degrees because in the former example the text ends up upside down).

I agree that negative rotation is a good feature to have, but why would rotating by -45 degrees result in upside down text? Unless I'm missing something it would result in text from bottom left to top right, the same as a 315 degree rotation.
