group the text box with another one [with no text or opacity = 0]; position the new one so that the group rotates around the desired rotation point

Thank you  kayakman for your reply,  but I  still think that the group will rotate about the same point which is the center of Canvas area in (0,0,0) with respect to the following inputs data for animation
Start

Rotations:  X=0, Y=90 , Z=0

Positions: X=0, Y=0 , Z=0

End

Rotations:  X=0, Y=0 , Z=0

Positions: X=0, Y=0 , Z=0

The following Gif file is what I asked about

With my regards

have you tried what I suggested?

I'm pretty sure it works around any of the 3 axis; you just need to position the 2nd callout appropriately before grouping

I can't do a show & tell because I am working on building out a huge template project
