Visio 2010: On connectors, how to align the text alongside the path

On Visio 2010, the text on the connector is always horizontal by default.

When the Visio becomes crowdy, it might be useful to set the text alongside the connector path.
On, in a more general way...
 

How to...

In the option menu, enable the Developper Mode

Now you can left-click on any link to display the ShapeSheet

In the ShapeSheet, go to the Text Transform section



In the TxtAngle setting, replace the current angle (0 deg) by this formula:
=ANGLEALONGPATH(Geometry1.Path,1)+IF(COS(ANGLEALONGPATH(Geometry1.Path,1))>=0,0,180°)
