Rotating annotation using the rotate handles

Annotation features selected with the Edit Annotation tool have special handles that you can drag to rotate the annotation.

If you want to rotate about a pivot point other than a rotate handle, use rotate mode. Rotate handles are not shown for curved annotation, so you should use rotate mode to rotate those features.

  1. Click the Edit Annotation tool Edit Annotation on the Editor toolbar and select the annotation.
  2. Move the pointer over a rotate handle. The cursor changes to the rotate symbol while it is positioned over the rotate handle.
  3. Click a rotate handle and drag the annotation to where you want it placed. The other rotate handle is the pivot point.
  4. Rotating annotation

    To turn off the rotate and resize handles, click Editor, click Options, then click the Annotation tab and uncheck the Show resize and rotate handles check box.
