    The selected shape will be rotated at the specified angle.

When specifying direction point for rotating

  1. Switch the parameter on Command Window to [Angle], and click a direction point for rotating on the drawing.
    The selected shape will be rotated in the selected direction.

When specifying angle between two lines connecting base point and specified two points

  2. Click a point to decide angle on the drawing.
    The selected shape will be rotated with the angle between the line connecting the base point and angle base point, and that connecting the base point and the point to decide angle.
