Error on generic rotation of text function

Problem description

Hi, I run the official tutorial text example in the Octave website, but it seems that it work only partially. As you can see from the image below, the text with rotation = 30° or 60° is ignored and is treated as 0° or 90°.

Here what I obtain if I run the example.

My system

This is a known problem. See the Octave bug tracker here: GNU Octave - Bugs: bug #33118, FLTK and Qt: text rotation fails... [Savannah].

The failure is onscreen only. If you print the figure the rotation will be correct.

@rik do you think that this problem will be solved in future release?

Yes, this will definitely get fixed. Since Octave is an all-volunteer effort, however, I don’t know exactly when.
