You can rotate an object by a specific number of degrees for extra precision. You can also rotate an object around a point relative to its current position.
To rotate an object with precision using the Transformation Docker
1 Select the object with the Pick tool.
2 Click Arrange, Transformation, and click the Rotation button.
3 Disable the Relative Center check box in the Transformation Docker.
4 Type values in the Rotation H (horizontal) and V (vertical) boxes to specify the coordinates around which you want to rotate the object.
5 Type a value in the Rotation Angle box.
• You can also rotate an object precisely by selecting it with the Pick tool and typing a new value in the Angle Of Rotation box on the Property Bar.
• A positive value in the Rotation Angle box rotates the object counterclockwise; a negative value rotates it clockwise from its current position.
• You can also rotate the object around any of its selection handles. For more information, see "Setting the center of rotation with precision" on page 285.
