Control the Rotation

Friday, September 1st, 2006 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help

Control the Rotation

Do you use a lot of pictures or drawings in your MS Office Suite programs?

Do you frequently rotate the objects?

Does it seem that you spend a lot of time just “nudging” the rotation?

Looking for a way to control the rotation so you don’t have each and every one of the 360 degrees to contend with?

How about a simple one key solution that brings the rotation down to 15 degree jumps? (That would certainly make it easy to rotate to a 45 degree angle with no guesswork involved!)

Next time you go to grab that little green circle to begin rotating an object, hold down the Shift key.

Yep, that’s all there is to it. The Shift key is the difference between a completely free rotation and one that stops every 15 degrees.

It’s just a small amount of control, but you’d be surprised at the huge difference it can make!
