After creating your text, you can go to Layers -> Rotate / Zoom (:RotateZoom:)

or

select the text with the selection tools (:RectangleSelectTool::LassoSelectTool::MagicWandTool::EllipseSelectTool:), choose the Move Selected Pixels tool (:MoveTool:) and right-click and drag to rotate.

Thankyou, I cut, and pasted straight back in to get the handles I needed
to rotate.

It would be nice have that option when the text goes in from the start though...

Maybe sometime it will be

Regards

This is a 4 year late reply - but for those still looking at those post.

 Create a new layer for the text, hold the Right button on the mouse and you'll be able to rotate like that.

We have a new version of paint.net out since this thread was started. That's one of the reasons the forum insists that topics remain current ;)
