To rotate an object by dragging

  1. Choose Window > Show Enfocus Inspector or click the Show Inspector button to display the Enfocus Inspector.
  2. Using the Select Objects tool , select the object which you want to rotate.
  3. Click the Rotate Selection tool .

    The Enfocus Inspector changes accordingly.

  4. If necessary, change the Constrain Angle (for SHIFT-rotate) or the Cross Hair Color in the Enfocus Inspector. You can change the Cross Hair Color by clicking the color patch and selecting a different color.
    Note: In the Numeric Feedback area you can find exact information about the rotating action you are about to perform.
  5. Click the selected object.

    The object’s point of origin around which it will be rotated is indicated.

    Figure 1. The point of origin is in the center of the selected object.

  6. Do one of the following:
    • To rotate the object around its center point, drag the selected object in a circular motion.

    • Hold down the SHIFT key while dragging to rotate the object in fixed angles. You can set this angle in the Numeric Feedback category of the Enfocus Inspector dialog box.
