Rotating Presentation Objects

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated March 20, 2014)

In developing a presentation, you create slides. On those slides you place objects, such as text boxes and images. As you are getting your slides to appear just the way you want, Presentation provides tools that allow you to easily rotate those objects for the effect you want. Here's how:

  1. Click once on the object to select it. (If you want to rotate text, make sure you click on the box that surrounds the text.)
  2. Click Arrange | Rotate. Presentation provides four rotational options.
  3. Click the rotation option you want.

That's it; the object is rotated as you specified in step 3. The four options mentioned in step 2 (the ones from which you can choose) are as follows:

  • Rotate Clockwise 90 Degrees
  • Rotate Counter-Clockwise 90 Degrees
  • Flip Horizontally
  • Flip Vertically
