The operation rotates image around a central point, using three fixed rotation angles (90°, 180° or 270°) or any angle. When an image is rotated at any angle the image size increases to inscribe rotated initial image.

To rotate at 90°, 180°, 270° angles:

CAD drafting Rotation 0    Ribbon: Raster – Align > CAD software Rotation 1 Rotate 90 ccw

CAD drawing Rotation 2    Ribbon: Raster – Align > CAD drafting Rotation 3 Rotate 180

CAD software Rotation 4    Ribbon: Raster – Align > CAD drawing Rotation 5 Rotate 90 cw

CAD drafting Rotation 6    Menu: Raster – Rotate >

·         CAD software Rotation 7 90 ccw

·         CAD drawing Rotation 8 180

·         CAD drafting Rotation 9 90 cw

CAD software Rotation 10    Toolbar: Raster – CAD drawing Rotation 11 CAD drafting Rotation 12 CAD software Rotation 13

CAD drawing Rotation 14 Command line:

·         ROTATEAT90

·         ROTATEAT180

·         ROTATEAT270

Select the images to rotate. If no image is selected, then this command processes all visible images located on unlocked layers.

Start the command Raster Modify – Rotate > select rotation condition.


To rotate at custom angle:

CAD drafting Rotation 15    Ribbon: Raster – Align > CAD software Rotation 16 Rotate Custom Angle

CAD drawing Rotation 17    Menu: Raster – Rotate > CAD drafting Rotation 18 Custom Angle…

CAD software Rotation 19    Toolbar: Raster – CAD drawing Rotation 20

CAD drafting Rotation 21 Command line: ROTATEATANGLE


1.    Select the images to rotate. If no image is selected, then this command processes all visible images located on unlocked layers.

2.    Start the command.

3.    Enter rotation angle to Angle field.

CAD software Rotation 22

Or press CAD drawing Rotation 23 Measure and specify line by 2 points. Angle will be measured between this line and X-axis.

4.    Select OK.
