    Using the Transform tool - Rotation

    Is it possible to rotate a Selection or a Stencil using the Transform tool in 4.5. I can see how to alter the shape using the tool but I do not see any indication of how to rotate. If I open a menu with a Right click Rotate appears to be greyed out and not selectable.

    I don't think it's possible to rotate a selection but you can 'paint area' to cover only the part you want selected if that helps. And you can draw freehand selections.

    However, you can rotate a stencil - see s/shot - move your cursor over the edge of the bounding box until the curly arrow appears - then you can rotate the stencil.

    I've realised this is a question for an android device - may be different.

    It is possible to rotate a selection in the desktop version - just click on it with the Transform tool, then hover the cursor outside the area to get the circular arrow, exactly as in the screenshot above


    Stencils can be rotated by:

    • Holding ALT and right clicking and dragging (holding CTRL lets you resize the stencil).
    • Right click on the stencil and choose 'Set Stencil Angle'



    (I think this was asked in the wrong part of the forum, as they specify 4.5 - so I'm moving the thread).

    Go forth and read the tutorials. Also, check out the featured artists!

    Stencils can also be rotated by selecting the stencil.. than the transform tool.. then going to the outside edge.. Or is that what Enug just said? LOL
