# Rotated text failure with DVI

I'm using the following code:

\begin{tabular}{r|ccc}
&
\begin{rotate}{60} Property 1 \end{rotate} &
\begin{rotate}{60} Property 2 \end{rotate} &
\begin{rotate}{60} Property 3 \end{rotate} \\ \hline
System 1        &       &       &  X    \\
System 2        & X     & X     &  X    \\
System 3        & X &   &  X    \\ \hline
\end{tabular}


It works perfectly for the PDF output. However, when I try to use DVI output, it fails. I tried to use rotatebox and sideways to rotate the text. However all did the same. PDF works great but DVI fails.

I would like to work with DVI for two reasons. (i) Compilation is faster than PDF. (ii) You can see where you left, it opens from the last edit point.

I currently use YAP 2.9, Texnic Center 1.0 Stable release C1.

Any thoughts?

Use the dvips render mode (YAP->view->Render Method). –  Ulrike Fischer Aug 29 '12 at 12:26
