    You have to uncheck Is a Building, rotate it, then change it back to a building.

    As long as you don't touch the building in the editor after that, it should continue to face that way in game. At least, from my experience with it.

    I'm sure there's a way to rotate buildings that aren't pre-placed with the method you described, I've seen it in a few maps... Unless there's a way to have a building show the building icon on the minimap and such without actually being a building.
