Don't quite understand the question. Do you want to start with an
antialiased object before the rotation and end with no antialising at
the end of the rotation.

No anti-aliasing at the end of the rotation is what I'm going for.
remove it when you are done rotating - i suppose. There is no setting in
FW that would allow you to do this automatically.
Just curious, why would you want to do that? I mean, if I don't want
anti-aliasing in an object, I start out with no anti-aliasing.

I start with the pencil tool with no anti-aliasing and draw....
Then, when I rotate it, I get this weird effect.
Now how do I get rid of that effect? NgU, you said that you can remove it after rotating. How do I do that?
The links are identical - alex

Okay, the problem is you are dealing with a bitmap. "Anti-aliasing" really only applies to the actual process of drawing when you are dealing with a bitmap. After it's been drawn, it's just a bunch of pixels on the canvas. When transforming the bitmap, you are dealing with resampling interpolation of those pixels. You have two options:
1) Change the interpolation mode to "nearest neighbor." This option can be found in your preferences dialog. This will prevent any softening(what you are calling anti-aliasing) as you rotate, but I doubt it will look any good after a rotation.
2) Use vector paths, with 1px hard stokes(like pencil > 1px hard). This is much more flexible, because not only will you be able to rotate and Fireworks will "re-paint" the stroke for you, so you won't get any interpolation problems, but you'll also be able to edit that path in the future, or even change the stroke options at any time. Try the Vector Path tool(found beneath the Pen tool) to get free stroke drawing like the pencil tool, only with live vectors.
