Rotate Text


Recommended Posts

Hi, i am using Paint.NET for some days now and it has all the abilities i need. However i try to find an option to rotate the text i inserted with the text tool clockwise or counterclockwise but i can only just move it around.

Can Paint.NET do this?

Sorry in advance for the n00b question.

Sure! Put it on a blank layer and then use "Layers > Rotate/Zoom."

Don't apologize. We were all newbies once. :-) (Besides, you can't apologize in advance for something you already did ;-))

Hope this helps!

Thanks that works, however i have one last problem. After i rotate the text how can i put back the little square with the four arrows so i can move the text again, because when i rotate it, it moves to a different location in the image and i don't know how to put it back.

You can't as once it's done, it's done. However, you can try this method:

- use the Rectangle Select Tool (:RectangleSelectTool:) to select the text, and the Move Selection Tool (:MoveSelectionTool:) to adjust selection if necessary;

- then use the Move Pixel Tool (:MoveTool: (different to the cursor icon above)) to move the selection about.

For a more in-depth look you could try the help files which can be found in the link provided below or by pressing F1 while in Paint.NET.
