The Rotation Angle dialog allows you to specify an angle of rotation to be applied to selected objects in the workspace.


The dialog is accessed in both the PCB Editor and the PCB Library Editor by clicking Edit » Move » Rotate Selection from the main menus.


Use the field to enter a value for rotation (resolution 0.001 Degrees). Enter a positive value for counterclockwise rotation, or a negative value for clockwise rotation.

Rotation is about a subsequently chosen reference point in the workspace after clicking OK in the dialog.
The latest input value used will appear in the field for further use.
