    Manually Rotate

    ODoyle Rules
      Hello everyone,

      I'm hoping someone can help or answer this question for me. I am trying to do a manual rotate of an object / un-grouped rectangle which now looks like a Nike symbol. I want to make it at an angle but i can't seem to do a free rotate. there is only Rotate 80, Rotate 90 CW, and Rotate 90 CCW. How do i do a free Rotate in Fireworks 8?

      Thanks,

          Select the object and click on the Transform tool in the tool bar. Move
          your cursor to just outside one of the transform bounding box and it
          will change to a rotate cursor. Click and drag.

            In addition, you can go to Modify\Transform\Numeric Transform
            (ctrl+shift+t), use the dropdown menu to select Rotate. You can use any
            degree there.
