Combining components with rotation applied into variants cancels the rotation back to 0

  1. Problem: Combining variations of a components with rotation applied cancels rotation.

  2. Context: I recently made some flow arrows in different directions (left, right, up, down, diagonals). The way I did this was to create a “master component” of an arrow, then use rotation to flip it (90 degrees, 180 degrees, etc). Then I would turn those rotated versions into their own symbol. Then I labelled them “Direction=Left(or up, down, right, etc)” so they would be in line with the “Property=Variant” naming. Well, when I went to go use them, the rotation was ignored, and it would just use the base “0 Degrees” on the component instead, no matter which direction I flipped it.

2b. Solution: I had to delete it, and start over recreating all the arrows in the proper directions without any rotation applied.

  1. Has anyone else experienced this?
