Rotating an object lets you move the object around an axis. To do this dynamically, use the red handles, as you do when changing the size of the object.
|| Rotation works in a slightly different way for 3D objects because the rotation occurs in 3D space and not in one plane. See Chapter 7 (Working with 3D Objects) in the Draw Guide regarding rotation when Edit Points mode is active.
To rotate an object (or a group of objects), drag the red corner handle points of the selection with the mouse. The mouse cursor takes the shape of an arc of a circle with an arrow at each end. A dotted outline of the object being rotated appears and the current angle of rotation is dynamically shown in the status bar.
Rotations are made about an axis which is displayed as a small symbol. You can move the axis of rotation with the mouse, as shown below.

If you hold down the Shift key during the rotation, the operation will be carried out in increments of 15°.
