Rotating graphical shapes
Graphical objects can be rotated by menu command
Object - Turn permanently. A dialog box appears, where you can specify the how many degrees the objects should rotate and around which point.
There are two types of rotating:
1. type (lines, polylines and Bezier curves) - each point of the object is rotated by given angle.
2. type (other objects) - only the mid-point of the object is rotated by given angle.
Let us illustrate rotating in an example, drawing a three phase machine:
Create the first branch of the machine. It is made up of two lines, three Bezier curves and an outlet.
Select all objects with the mouse pointer and save them to the clipboard by
Ctrl + C.
Then invoke menu command
Object - Turn permanently. Enter 120° degrees in the dialog box and hit the OK button.
Insert the original branch by
Ctrl + V. Select the branch with the mouse and turn the objects by -120°.
Insert the original branch again. Symbol is done.
