Does Vector Tiles generated from ArcGIS Pro can support label with text-rotation-alignment and symbol with icon-rotation-alignment? Such that user can choose whether the text and symbol rotation is align to map or display? If not support, any plan to support in the future?

Currently, the output vector tile generated from ArcGIS Pro when displaying with JS API, point label rotation will always align to display x-y axis and point symbol rotation will always align to display x-y axis as well. I want the output vector tile text label and icon symbol rotation can align with map east-west axis when displaying with JS API. So when I rotating the map view in JS API, the text label and icon symbol rotation can align with map east-west axis instead of keeping align to display x-y axis.

Thank you.

At this point, this is a question, rather than an Idea, so might be best asked in the ArcGIS Pro‌ space. 

Have you looked at General label settings—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation ?

This setting seems does not have any effect on setting whether the output vector tile text label and symbol rotation will align to map or display. The output vector tile when displaying with JS API, point label rotation will always align to display and point symbol rotation will always align to display as well. I want the output vector tile text label and icon symbol rotation can align with map east-west axis when displaying with JS API. So when I rotating the map view in JS API, the text label and icon symbol rotation can align with map east-west axis instead of keeping align to display x-y axis.

Thanks for the additional details, Tom.  Neither the title nor the description mentioned vector tiles...  so the request falls more in line with https://community.esri.com/ideas/12702 but if you want to make it specific about supporting rotation (specific is always more actionable than general) I'd recommend updating the title and description to clarify the request.

Thanks!

Title and description updated. Thank you.
