Slanting Text

It would be nice to be able to set an angle you want text to be on - much like you can set a GradientAngle. As far as I know, there isn't a way you can currently do this beyond beyond positioning each letter individually and even that isn't going to rotate the letters themselves at all.

You set Angle= on the string meter and it will "slant" the text to any degree of radians that you define.

That would be the one. Sorry, I should have noticed that one in the manual. I guess it's one of those underused utilities that's easy to miss.

EDIT: How about rotating images?

Theoretically... I think you can rotate images, but I don't know.
