Hi all,

Thanks for the confirmation, we all seem to agree that grob rotation should
be taken into account when creating skylines, whereas extra-offset should
stay as it is, i.e. not affect the skylines.

All we need to do is read the "rotation" grob property, that's very fast and
you won't notice anything.
Only if it's a non-empty list (normally, this property is never set) there's
need for action, otherwise there will be no change to the skyline at all.

I think that'd be a really handy feature.

As an example, I've rotated the treble by 180° (thinking of Mozart's "Der
Spiegel"/"The Mirror").
Above (current version) you can see that the skyline is not rotated.
Much worse: trying to get TextScripts out of their way by rotating them by
30° via TextScript.rotation doesn't work at all and results in a mess:


I think I'll set up a new issue for that (this is more general than the box
skyline modeling issue 5307 and I'd like to keep these things separate).

All the best,
