public enum CanvasVerticalGlyphOrientation
  Member nameValueDescription
Default0 With this default option and vertical layout, naturally horizontal scripts, such as Latin script, rotate 90 degrees clockwise, while ideographic scripts, such as Chinese, remain upright.
Stacked1 With this option and vertical layout, ideographic scripts that permit stacking, such as Latin script, appear stacked, and are not rotated. Connected scripts, such as Arabic, which would otherwise look broken if glyphs were kept at 0 degrees, remain connected and rotate.
By default, some naturally horizontal scripts may be rotated if they're drawn using a vertical text direction.
