Bug introduced in 11.0.1 and fixed in 11.1

It seems that WordOrientation does not work in v11. The sample code

input = ExampleData[{"Text", "AliceInWonderland"}];
WordCloud[input, WordOrientation -> "Random"]

produces an image with horizontal words only. Is there a potential workaround?

    $\begingroup$ Based on Open Cloud WordCloud[input, WordOrientation -> {-Pi/2,Pi/2}] also fails. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @C.E. What is your version? I tested with 11.0.1 macOS. Do you still have 11.0.0? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ None of WordOrientation possible settings ("Random", "Vertical", {values}, ...) work for me either (v11.0.1). (Also strangely in the FE no info box is automatically popping up when pointer mouse is over it.) $\endgroup$
