Hello, currently the main control for marker symbol rotation is controlled within the Advanced ArcMap Settings Utility.
-Check this to rotate marker symbols with dataframe rotation. This applies to marker sysmbols rotated by a field, based on the advanced symbology option.
Having this function controlled here does not provide the feliblity to change this need based upon map document, thus currently having an all or 1 option vs. a case by case option to control this.
I propose that this option be changed to be alligned with the Rotation option located within the Data Frame Properties to provide this flexibility. It can be the same simple checkbox located below or near the data frame roation option.
