Rotating the sketch coordinate?

I would like to place some text on a cylindrical surface to emboss(wrap) it onto a part. I created a sketch plane tangent to thecylindrical surface, but the coordinate system is not orientedcorrectly. As a result the text is rotated 90 degrees from thedirection I want it to be. Using the "rotate text" buttoncauses the text to stack-up vertically rather than rotating thewhole line of text. Can I rotate the coordinate system somehow, oris there another solution?
