Rotate portion of a floor plan

Recommended Posts

Am I completely missing something, or how do you go about rotating a portion of a floor plan around a specific point?  I currently have a floor plan with a potion extending at a 45 degree.  I want to rotate that 45 degree portion to 90 degrees instead.  After selecting everything that I want to rotate, I've found a tool called 'rotate/resize about current point' but don't seam to get this tool to do anything at all.  I've also tried using 'transform/replicate object' tool but rotate is not an option here as it is grayed out and I can't select it.  HELP!

Place a point to rotate about.

 

Edit Area to select what you want to rotate.

 

Transform/Replicate to rotate about current point.

 

or

 

Edit Area to select what you want to rotate.

 

Drag the selection away.

 

Use the Rotate Handle to rotate.

 

Point-to-Point to move.

This is not a tool as such, it is a setting.

ie, you can rotate objects about the current point, object centre or absolute point.

So, if you want to rotate around a point, you have to place a point first, and then rotate.

I would start with a polyline around the area to rotate (at the 45 degree angle).  Then use edit area as Eric described.  that way you can rotate just the angled portion.

Edit Area

 

You may draw a closed polyline, shape it as needed, then while it is selected, invoke Edit Area and it will use the polyline for its selection.

 

One advantage to this method is that the polyline stays in place.

 

or

 

Invoke Edit Area, drag out its polyline, and shape it as needed.
