This will be hard for the FLTK backend which only supports text rotation in 90 degree increments.

The gnuplot backend supports arbitrary rotation, but unfortunately it seems to work only for text objects and not for xlabels or ylabels.

Ok to mark it as request/wishlist.

I'm not opposed to allowing the behavior you want, but I think it should probably be configurable. I also have no idea how to make the change. OK to mark as a feature request/wishlist item?

Sorry to say that this is also how Matlab does it.

While that does somewhat reduce the interest in
fixing it, I still think that most users would
prefer the x and y labels to be parallel to the
axes (as is the zlabel). And, I do not think
that this should be decided by compatibility.

I see the same behvior with gnuplot.

I should have mentioned: this is using
fltk.

Using mesh() and possibly other 3D plots
the xlabel and ylabel text is horizontal,
not parallel to the respective axes.

Is this a known behavior?
The appropriate orientation is parallel to
each axis.
