Description Charles Petzold 2017-08-01 19:14:47 UTC
1) Run this program on an iPhone or iOS simulator:


The visuals are implemented entirely in the XAML file:


The rotated Label's are centered around the center of the page.

2) Turn the phone or simulator to landscape mode. The rotated text is no longer centered.

This happens only on iOS, and only when AnchorX and/or AnchorY are set to non-default values. Obviously the code that compensates for the translation effects of these properties on iOS is not working correctly.
