Rotating and skewing objects

Quickly rotate or skew an object or a group of objects by dragging handles in the drawing window.  Using the Pick tool , click the object twice to display the rotation and skew handles, and do the following:

  • To rotate the object, drag a rotation handle. To rotate the object by 15-degree increments, hold down Ctrl while dragging the rotation handle.
  • To skew or slant the object to one side, drag a skew handle. To skew the object in 15-degree increments, hold down Ctrl while dragging the skew handle.

1 – Rotation handle; 2 – Skew handle

 

The object is rotated (left) and skewed (right).
