"Floating" Text Label Trait

Hi. In practice, when a Text Label is input for one my counters, the text properly appears along the top of the counter.

Is there a way to set the properties of the text label so that the label would remain “floating” at that top “readable” position as the counter itself may rotate throughout a game turn?

Thanks in advance.

Yes. This is controlled by the order of the traits. So just make
sure the label trait is after the rotate trait.

Partial Rotation: The order of traits in a piece is important.
Generally, a trait can modify only those other traits that appear
before it in the list. Edit the Zombie Warship and add a “Can Rotate”
trait. Then select it and push the “Move Up” button until it is
between the two Layer traits. This will make the Zombie Warship
depiction rotate without making the Undeath Ray depiction rotate.
