Using the Rotate tool
When georeferencing a CAD dataset, the Rotate tool is a quick way to drag the dataset to an approximate rotation angle. The Rotate tool uses a selection anchor as a pivot point for the rotation. The anchor appears as a small x located in the center of the CAD dataset.
- Right-click the main menu bar and click Georeferencing on the shortcut menu to add the toolbar.
- Click the Layer drop-down arrow and click a CAD feature layer.
- Click the Rotate button .
Click and drag the pointer on the map in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction to rotate the CAD dataset about its anchor.
The CAD dataset appears as a boundary box until you release the mouse button.
- Release the mouse button to complete the task and update the display.
You can change the center of rotation by dragging the selection anchor to a new location. Pause the pointer over the anchor until the pointer changes to a four-arrow pointer, then drag and drop the anchor to a new location. The anchor will return to its original location after each rotation.
