Rotating Objects

To rotate an object that is not currently selected:

1.   Click the Rotate tool that appears to the left of the screen, or just press the R key on your keyboard.

2.   Click an object in your design to select it.

3.   Click the object again, but this time hold down the left mouse button as you move your mouse in a circular motion to rotate the object. Alternately, press the Enter key to rotate the object manually.

To rotate one or more selected objects:

1.   Move your mouse over one of the selected objects that you wish to rotate.

2.   Click and hold the left mouse button, then move your mouse in a circular motion to rotate all selected objects. Alternately, press the Enter key to rotate the selected objects manually.

When rotating multiple objects at once, they will be rotated about their common center, not their individual centers.

While you are rotating, the number of degrees that the object is revolving will be shown at the very bottom of the screen.

Tip:  Objects can also be rotated without using the Rotate tool; see Moving Objects for more information.
