Moving the transformation center

When you rotate an object or skew an object (using the Selector Tool Infobar) the rotation or skew depends on the position of the transformation center. For example, if you want to rotate an object around its top left corner, you can move the transformation center to the top left corner of the object.

1. Ensure you are using the Selector Tool.

2. Change the selection handles to rotate/skew mode (see Switching selection handle mode).

3. Drag the transformation center to a new position. If you hold down CTRL whilst dragging the center, it will be constrained to the nine points shown on the Transformation Center Grid on the Selector Tool Infobar.
