[postgis-users] Getting dimensions of polygon sides

 When I exported it out with Ogr2Ogr, it exported out polygon boxes
angled in the direction the text should be angled (almost like a
placeholder for the text). 

So does it look fine in ArcMap, but when you export it out it sometimes
has a line crossing itself? or you can't export it out at all?

My limited experience is the annotation in ArcMap can be a pretty 
bizarre format.  Sometimes is comes out fine - other times it has a line

crossing itself.  If you have a curved annotation, it gets even worse.
