Hi, what's the best way to rotate text in the current version of paint.net?

Recommended Posts



I'd like to ask about the easiest and/or best way to rotate text, to different angles of my choice.  There's advice about it near the bottom of this old thread




which is locked.


For the current version of paint.net, should I just follow the advice at the bottom of this thread, or is there a better way?  (I'd like to be able to do it in such a way that the background is transparent, so the picture I will be overlaying the text onto will still be visible).


Thank you for any advice!!

Do you want to rotate an entire block of text or just individual layers?


No matter what you do, in order to keep the background transparent, just make sure to put your text on a new layer before rotation.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
