The big tryout

Post by dolphin7 » Fri Nov 08, 2002 6:32 pm

I've been using many design programs and usually don't find any problem in using them. I had decided to download this one to give a try, but when I want to make a rotation I can't find the option anywhere :? ... I'm sure the answer is hidden there somewhere (and it could be right under my nose)... :lol:
For anyone who want's to share that answer I would greatly appreciate it 8)

Rotating Glyphs - Big Tryout

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala » Sat Nov 09, 2002 11:18 pm

In the glyph edit window, click the glyph that you want to rotate to select it.
Click it again to get the rotation handles at the corners. Then drag to rotate.
Double-clicking goes into point edit mode.

Hey, thanks for that tip Bhikkhu. I wasn't aware that you could single-click a 2nd time and rotate/skew!

dolphin7: Alternatively, if you want a precise amount of rotation, you can single click the glyph and use the rotation tab on the Transform Toolbar (if it's not visible, enable it via View/Toolbars).
