Rotating Shape Box for Polyline?

PostMon Jan 29, 2018 5:42 pm

I've looked in the manual for this. I found that I can adjust the "shape" of a Polyline with a Shape Box. But, what about rotating the Shape Box so I can rotate the mask as well? Is there a shortcut that allows me to rotate the Shape Box?

Thanks in advance.

Selecting points on a mask (or using the box shape) mask then using the following hotkeys lets you

Shortcut "t" rotates around the current mouse position as pivot
Shortcut "x" scales the X axis of the selection around the current mouse position as pivot
Shortcut "y" scales the Y axis of the selection around the current mouse position as pivot

Also you can hit SHIFT-B to do box selection and do regular transformations and hold down SHIFT when selecting the corners/points on the shape box to change the box in perspective mode.

I feel stupid now. I never knew this.

Thanks Alan.
