    Is there a property of ID js textBox object that corresponds to Text Field Properties/Orientation in Acrobat Pro?


      I. e., can a form field in PDF exported from ID have sideways text, when being filled?

      Property 'rotationAngle' rotates only bounding box, but text inside it remains horizontal:


      var someDoc = app.documents.add();

      var someform= someDoc.pages[-1].textBoxes.add();

      someform.geometricBounds = [20, 0, 30, 100];

      someform.rotationAngle = 90;


      While Acrobat is definitely capable of rendering sideways form fields (Tools/Prepare form and then Properties/General/Orientation)
