Rotating entities

You can rotate entities about a specified point at a specified rotation angle or by an angle referenced to a base angle. The default method rotates the entities using a relative rotation angle from their current orientation.

To rotate a selection set
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Modify > Rotate.
  3. On the Modify toolbar, click the Rotate tool (
  4. ).
  • Type rotate and then press Enter.
  • Select the entities, and then press Enter.
  • Specify the rotation point.
  • Specify the rotation angle.
  •  

     

     

    To rotate an entity, select the entity to rotate ( A ), and then specify the rotation point ( B ) and the rotation angle ( C ).

To rotate a selection set in reference to a base angle
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Modify > Rotate.
  3. On the Modify toolbar, click the Rotate tool (
  4. ).
  • Type rotate and then press Enter.
  • Select the entities, and then press Enter.
  • Specify the rotation point.
  • In the prompt box, choose Base Angle.
  • Specify the base angle.

    To rotate an entity in reference to a base angle, select the entity ( A ), specify the rotation point ( B ), select the base angle and pick point ( B ) again (or type the @ symbol), specify the second point ( C ), and then specify the point representing the new angle ( D ).
