Rotating Text


 I'm trying to rotate text, but I can't figure out how to do it.  I tried using "Character Shift", but that actually shifts each letter in the entire text.  I actually am trying to just rotate the entire thing about 30 degrees.  Basically if you were to print it out and turn the sheet on an angle.  That's how I want it to look on the screen, is that possible?

  • Using the Pick Tool, click once to stretch the text, then click again to rotate or skew. Holding shift while rotating will give you exact 15 deg increments.

     I'll bet if you typed "rotate text" in help it would say the same thing. Stick out tongue

    There are a couple ways to do this.

    Double clicking as Roger mentioned.

    Select the text you want to rotate and input the rotation angle in the Angle of Rotation filed on the Property Bar.

    Use the Transformations / Rotate Docker  Alt+F8 or Window/ Dockers/ Transformations/ Rotation
