CHAPTER
Flip and Rotate Objects
Sometimes when you combine several shapes to create a more complex graphic or you want a
picture to appear more dramatic, you can rotate it. For example, you may have a triangle shape as
a hill with a clip art car going up the hill. PowerPoint enables you to rotate an object 360 degrees or
quickly flip it horizontally or vertically to accomplish that dramatic effect. The Picture Tools Format
tab offers all of the flip and rotation tools, but you can also click and drag to rotate the object.
