Chapter 9. Transforming > Rotating Objects

Rotating Objects

InDesign can rotate any object on a page, in .001-degree increments. The rotation angle is always shown relative to the pasteboard (where 0 degrees is horizontal) or to the frame containing the rotated object (unless you’ve turned on the Transformations are Totals option). If you rotate an object by 30 degrees, entering that rotation value again in the Rotation Angle field will not change the rotation of the object. To do that, you’d need to enter “+30” following the value shown in the Rotation Angle field—or use the Rotate dialog box.

Rotating with the Rotate Tool

To rotate an object “by eye,” select the object or objects and follow these steps (see Figure 9-16).
