Characters are displayed rotated by 90 degrees

Why are characters sometimes displayed rotated by 90o when using SIMATIC WinCC V5.1 ASIA?

This behaviour can occur when a set of characters has been chosen that has an @ in front of it. Please check if the chosen set of characters is e. g. "@Arial".

As a remedy, please choose a set of characters without @ (e. g. "Arial").
