After you create an object, you can change its orientation by rotating it. For a freeform rotation, when you want to rotate the object in other than 90-degree increments, you can use the Selection or Rotate tool. You can transform the object from its center or the reference point. With the Selection tool, you can drag a corner handle (New!) just like in Illustrator to rotate around the center. With the Rotate tool, which is under the Free Transform tool (New!), you drag the object to rotate around the reference point. As you drag a freeform rotation, rotation lines and a tool tip appear from the center or reference to indicate the rotation angle (New!). To rotate an object in 90-degree increments or flip it horizontally or vertically, you can use easy access buttons on the Control panel. If you want to rotate an object with an exact angle value, you can use the Control or Transform panel, which is available on the Object & Layout submenu on the Window menu.

Free Rotate an Object Using the Selection Tool

1. Select the Selection tool on the Tools panel.

2. Select one or more objects to transform.

3. Position the pointer just outside a corner handle (cursors changes to an arc with arrows) (New!).

4. Drag in a circular motion. As you drag, rotation lines appears indicating the rotation angle.

  • To rotate in 45-degree increments, Shift-drag.
