Rotating and Flipping the Canvas

Corel Painter lets you rotate and flip the Canvas layer. When you rotate or flip the Canvas layer, all other layers move along with it. You can rotate the Canvas layer by a predefined amount, or you can choose the amount of rotation. If your document has layers of different varieties, you are prompted to commit all of them to default, pixel-based layers. The Canvas layer increases in size when necessary, so rotating or flipping it does not cause the contents of other layers to be cropped.

To rotate the Canvas layer by a predefined amount

1 Choose Canvas menu > Rotate Canvas.

2 Choose one of the following:

• 180 to rotate 180 degrees

• 90 CW to rotate 90 degrees clockwise

• 90 CCW to rotate 90 degrees counterclockwise

To rotate the Canvas layer by a user-defined amount

1 Choose Canvas menu > Rotate Canvas > Arbitrary.

2 In the Rotate Selection dialog box, type the number of degrees of rotation you want in the Amount box.

To flip the Canvas

1 Choose Canvas menu > Rotate Canvas.

2 Choose one of the following:

• Flip Canvas Horizontal

• Flip Canvas Vertical
