An option for point labels to automatically rotate as needed

    I wish it were possible to get point labels to rotate (to avoid boundary lines), WITHOUT using a field to set a pre-determined rotation. I just want them to not be locked into being horizontal. Polygon and line labels seem to be able to do this - why not points? 

     

    Here is an example of one of hundreds of map pages that would be helped by this. The horizontal polygons fit the addresses inside them well, but for the vertical polygons, the addresses overlap their bounds. If they were free to be placed vertically, this would not be such a problem.

     

     

    Thanks!
