Sometimes I can manually rotate an image by hovering my cursor near the corner node of a placed image till it changes to the rotate cursor then clicking and dragging the node to rotate the image.
Other times hovering around the node doesn't make the rotate cursor appear. Even if I make the image small so there should be room to rotate within the canvas.
Why am I not able to rotate an image this way all the time?
And of course I just figured out I have to switch to the the Selection Tool to rotate after using the Direct Selection Tool to select the image.
