Added programming notes about properties not yet being implemented to x/y/ztickangle function docstrings in

that should be sufficient documentation to cover this issue until the rotations are actually implemented (which is being addressed in other bug reports).

marking as fixed and closing report.

x/y/zticklabelrotation properties are now listed in the manual as unimplemented with the doc change from bug #65167.  would still be good to add a help note and/or a warning to the x/y/ztickangle functions.

Xtickangle is not operational, but only a dummy for Matlab compatibility. This information is missing in help output and the documentation. I.E.: If you issue xtickangle(45) nothing happens, and xtickangle() reports 45. Also get(gca,‘xticklabelrotation’) reports 45.
It’s not a big issue, it costs only the one or other hour until you know, that this command is not functional and that this is not a problem of your own system. Hence, a small note about this issue would be very helpful for the user.
