Chapter 9. Pictures > To rotate a picture and its box using the Rotation tool:

To rotate a picture and its box using the Rotation tool:

1.
Choose the Rotation tool.

2.
Click on a picture box.

3.
Press to create an axis point, pause briefly for the picture to redraw (if desired), drag to reposition the cursor away from the axis point to create a lever , then drag the lever clockwise or counterclockwise.

Figure 2. If you drag away from the axis point before rotating, you will create a lever, and the rotation will be easier to control. If you don't pause before dragging, only the outline of the box will be displayed as you rotate it.
