Scale bar/text rotate

ArcView, ArcGIS has made a lot of strides and progress in the 15 years I've been using it...but why can't a simple scale bar or scale text be rotated?  And if it can, please tell me how.  I just don't understand why this is something that can't be done.  I know you can convert it to graphics and rotate it, but why do we HAVE to do it that way?  Just don't get it....

You can rotate the text or numbers...In the scale and Units tab, click on Symbol, then properties and set the angle to 180. Works for me.

Good Luck
