Rotate about object centre


Hi I need a tool that rotates multiple objects about their centres, I often have to import files with lots of text from other sources but the drawing will not be rotated to suit my file, when I rotate the drawing the text goes with it.

I have found  a vectorscript that can do this but have just spent the last hour trying to get the script to work, (it still doesn't) and would have been quicker to manually rotate all the text objects.

Is there another way of doing this?

It would be good if this is included as a default option with the 2d rotate tool for those that do not have time or know-how to work with scripts.

Every text object has its own rotation parameter in the OIP.  You can select all the text and edit that parameter in the OIP in one operation.

I wrote a script to rotate objects about their individual centers back in 2007-2010.  Here is a link to the last version.


Anytime you are looking for scripts it is a good idea to go to  Archive:Resource Sharing: Resource Share - Vectorscript and see what is in the ancient history. Most of it still works.
