When you create a shape, you can specify its rotation from the global axis system where appropriate. You can apply rotations to all shapes and groups using the mouse.
To determine whether you want to limit the rotation of objects to multiples of 15°, see Control angle snapping.
- Select the objects that you want to rotate.
- In the toolbar, click the Rotate button.
- Click one of the selected objects and hold down the left mouse button.
Drag the object until you achieve the desired rotation.
The way objects are rotated depends on their grouping.
If you rotate separate objects, each object is rotated around its midpoint.
If you rotate groups, each group rotates around its midpoint.
Once the rotation is correct, release the left mouse button.
The shapes are rotated in the desired position.
