Overlay rotation angle in degrees. When Use compass angle is enabled, this will show the current compass angle.

Scale evenly

When one dimension of the size is changed, adjust the other size proportionally. Uncheck this option to change one dimension without changing the other.

Use compass angle

Automatically rotate the overlay based on the compass angle. For example, this is useful if you have imported a map and want it to always match the current North direction.
