Rotate

Rotate opens a dialog box where you can enter the angle of rotation in degrees. The selected objects are then rotated by the number of degrees that you specify. The rotation is done counter clockwise for positive rotation angles. By default, the rotation center is the center-of-mass of the selected objects. If the Use center-of-mass option is not selected, you can enter a rotation center (xc,yc) as a 1-by-2 MATLAB® vector such as [-0.4 0.3].
