Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to rotate selected objects about a specified rotation 'base' point, in the current document.
This command can be accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by:
- Choosing the Edit » Rotate command from the main menus.
- Clicking the button, on the Editing Tools drop-down () of the Utilities toolbar.
- Using the Ctrl+R keyboard shortcut.
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a square and you will enter rotation mode. The procedure involves the following sequence of actions:
- Click on the objects that are to be rotated, making them selected. Clicking away from an object allows you to drag a selection area, for including multiple objects in the selection. Selection is cumulative.
- When all required objects have been selected, right-click.
- You will then be prompted to select a base point. This is the point about which rotation will occur. Move the cursor to the required location and click to define this base point.
- The Enter Value dialog will now appear, from where you can enter a value for the rotation, in degrees. After clicking OK, the selection will be rotated about the base point, and by the rotation angle specified.
- Continue selecting further objects to rotate, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit rotation mode.
- When specifying the rotation angle, enter a positive value for anti-clockwise rotation, or a negative value for clockwise rotation.
