Vertex Secondary Label: Text Rotation

It would be great to have an optional functionality in the autofill dialog box in order to control the text rotation (Vertical, diagonal, or free degree submission)

Thanks for the suggestion!

I should note that improvements to labeling are in the works.

In fact, please note today's release (version 91) that introduces Edge Lables for the first time in the project.

Great to hear about the labeling work!  This tool just keeps on getting better and better.

On a related if somewhat tangential note: self-loops. 

I struggle with self-loops occluding edges and/or labels.  Controlling label positioning might help in some cases.  If it doesn't complicate the UI too much, however, it would also be good to be able to control the placement of self-loops relative to a node.  (I haven't been able to deduce the self-loop placement algorithm by observation; they're not always in the same place...) And while I'm at it: being able to control the size/shape of self-loops would also be great.  (I can supply screengrabs of examples if it would help.)

Thanks for a great piece of software
