I am following this tutorial, http://vector.tutsplus.com/tutorials/illustration/lets-make-a-playful-yet-robust-3d-letter -design/
Step 3 states "press V for the rotate tool".
I have pressed V and nothing happens.
Can anyone tell me how else to rotate text?
Sorry for the dumb question
The words used in step 3 are actually: Even after you apply 3D effects that you would like your letter to have you can also continue to rotate the letter to whatever angle you like, as I've done below. Just use the Selection Tool (V) to rotate the letter.
My guess is that the author means you can (normally) select any letter and apply (an additional) rotation like in Step 2. Otherwise, it should have read Just use the Rotation Tool (R) to rotate the letter.
The rotation shown does not correspond to a simple rotation as with the Rotation Tool, but to a combination of angle changes as in Step 2.
Thank you Jacob
You are welcome, Josel.
