A Little Rotation
Do you use the drawing tools in MS Office?
I just love those little AutoShapes for highlighting the really important stuff. But, have you ever wondered how you could rotate those things to any angle you wish?
Well, if you’ve ever have, here’s the information you’re looking to know.
First, let’s draw an AutoShape. How about this one?
Now that you have the drawing, you’re looking for the small green handle.
This handle will allow you to free rotate the AutoShape around the center of the object. Just click and drag the handle.
To control the rotation just a bit, try holding down the Shift key while you drag the green handle and the figure will rotate in 15 degree increments around the center of the object.
The Ctrl key can also come into play while you’re rotating an AutoShape. Pressing the Ctrl key, while rotating the object, changes the point of rotation to the handle opposite of the green one.
Yes, it’s all in the little green free rotation handle. With that, you can spin your AutoShapes any way you like!
