Chapter 7. Drawing and Modifying Objects > Rotating and Flipping an Object

Rotating and Flipping an Object

Once you create an object, you can change its orientation on the page by rotating or flipping it. Rotating turns an object 90 degrees to the right or left; flipping turns an object 180 degrees horizontally or vertically. If you need a more exact rotation, which you cannot achieve in 90 or 180 degree increments, you can drag the green rotate lever at the top of an object to rotate it to any position. You can also rotate and flip any type of picture–including bitmaps–in a Web page. This is useful when you want to change the orientation of an object or image, such as changing the direction of an arrow.

Rotate an Object to any Angle

Click the object you want to rotate.

Position the pointer (which changes to the Free Rotate pointer) over the green rotate lever at the top of the object, and then drag to rotate the object.

Click outside the object to set the rotation.
