[Solved] How to Rotate Object?

Postby John Galt » Wed Aug 07, 2013 8:20 pm

This is a basic DRAW technique.

But I do not (yet) have it ...

I click on an object. Then I click on the rotate icon on the appropriate toolbar.

What then to actually rotate an object?

I only want to rotate my object 90 degrees.

The documentation is, to me vague.

Thanks!

2 possibilities:
- Click once, you get green handles, click again, the handles become red and you can turn the object.
- Right click the object and in the Position & Size dialog, use the Rotation tab.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the edit button if your issue has been fixed.

For "even" rotations, I normally use the Position & Size dialog (Hagar's option #2), but you can also use the red rotation handles & the mouse:

hold Shift while you drag/rotate and the rotation angle will snap to multiples of 15°.

The 'Position and Size' recommendation worked well.

Still haven't gotten the use of the red handles ...
