Rotating an Object

When you select an object on a slide, a handle with a green end on it appears at the top center of the object. This is the rotation handle, and it can be used to rotate any object on a slide. The rotation handle enables you to revolve an object around a center point.

To rotate an object, do the following:

  1. Click the object you want to rotate.

  2. Place the mouse pointer on the object's Rotation handle (the green dot) until the Rotation icon appears.

  3. Hold down the mouse button and drag the Rotation handle until the object is in the position you want.

  4. Release the mouse button.

The Draw menu (on the Drawing toolbar) also enables you to rotate or flip an object. You can flip an object horizontally left or right or flip the object vertically from top to bottom. To flip an object, click the Draw button on the Drawing toolbar and then point at Rotate and Flip . Select either Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical from the menu that appears.


Can't Find the Drawing Toolbar? If the Drawing toolbar does not appear at the bottom of the PowerPoint application window, right-click any visible toolbar and select Drawing .
