Rotating a Graphic
Max still isn’t happy with the appearance of the graphic because of the amount of white
space on the left side. He suggests rotating the image so that the airplane is positioned
horizontally on the page. You can use the Rotate Left button on the Picture toolbar to
rotate the image.
To rotate the airplane graphic:
1. If necessary, click the clip art to select it. The sizing handles appear.
2. Click the Rotate Left 90˚ button
on the Picture toolbar. The graphic rotates 90 degrees
to the left.
3. Click the Rotate Left 90˚ button
again. The graphic rotates another 90 degrees, leaving
the airplane upside down.
4. Click the Rotate Left 90˚ button again. The graphic rotates another 90 degrees. Now
the airplane appears to be flying across the page from left to right. The selection handles
become circles. See Figure 4-18. If you needed to rotate the image with the text wrapped
around it, you could drag the rotation handle, which is the round green circle.
