Is it possible to rotate the text in the bar labels?

I'm recently discovered ODS graphics designer and am enjoying modifying the code to deliver custom charts, however, I'm trying to work out whether I can rotate the text displayed when using the barlabel=true statement?  I've successfully tried to use the size command through the barlabelattrs but the text is still overlapping and wondered whether it was possible or if anyone had an alternative?

Re: Is it possible to rotate the text in the bar labels?

I don't see an easy way.  I suggest using a horizontal bar chart.  Works great for long axis tick values and bar labels.,  If you must have a VBAR,for a one of a kind graph with SAS 9.3, you could take the GTL code (from View->code) , and add DRAWTEXT statements.  Or convert o an SGPLOT VBAR (very simple code), and add SGANNO for the bar labels.

Not as easy as Designer, but...FYI, rotated bar labels are coiming with SAS 9.4..
