    Unhappy Rotate tracing layer

    Why can't I rotate the tracing layer? I can move it and re size it but it's not in the position I want.

    Hi and welcome to the forums
    I'm not sure why an image brought in as a tracing image can't be rotated?, but sadly it can't be. (Though there are times it would be useful if it could).
    To get around this you can bring the image you want to trace in as a separate layer and set its opacity to say 50% or less. I would also select 'Lock Paint' for this "DIY" tracing layer to avoid inadvertently painting on it.
    This way all the 'Transform' options can be performed on it as its just an ordinary paint layer.
    It should be said though that with this method you will not be able to automatically pickup colour from the tracing image like you can with the other "built in" method.
