To rotate any element or group of elements, select the shape or group of shapes. A bounding box will appear with a rotation icon at the top. Click the rotation icon, drag it into the correct orientation, then release. While you are rotating the element, you will see a display of the rotation in degrees. If you have snap-to-grid placement enabled, objects will automatically rotate in increments of 5 degrees.

You can also specify exact rotation for any shape or group of shapes:

1. Select the shape or group of shapes.
2. Open the blue properties menu.
3. In the Rotation field, define the exact rotation in degrees clockwise.
