Part 5. Illustrating Your Slides > Flipping and Rotating Slide Objects

Flipping and Rotating Slide Objects

To flip an object, click the object to select it.

Click the Draw button on the Drawing toolbar and click Rotate or Flip.

Click Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical.

PowerPoint flips the object.

INTRODUCTION

Another way to modify your slide illustrations is to change their position by flipping or rotating. Flipping an object simply turns it over, making it a mirror-image of the original. You can flip objects horizontally or vertically. Rotating, on the other hand, moves an object on an invisible axis, changing the direction of the object in a clockwise or counterclockwise fashion.


CAUTION

Use caution when flipping an image that includes text. Flipping will cause the text to read backward, as if held to a mirror.


To rotate a selected object, click the Draw button on the Drawing toolbar and click Rotate or Flip.

Click Free Rotate.

Rotation handles surround the object. Click and drag a handle to rotate the object.

Release the mouse button; the object is rotated.
