Rotate text, shapes and objects

I’m having troubles rotating would appreciate some help

Hello there @Zakaria_Mohamed and welcome to our forum!

I’m sorry to hear you’re having an issue - let’s see what we can do to get this resolved.

It’s important to understand that the options for control rotation are quite limited in Balsamiq Wireframes. For example, the Label control supports changing the orientation of the text in the control (in the Property Inspector):

But it’s not free-form rotation - you can choose from vertical, horizontal and slanted orientation.

We don’t, however, support the ability to rotate any control by any degree. There’s some discussion of the thinking behindthat in this forum thread: Feature Request: Rotate any shape by any degree

Please let us know if anything is unclear or you have any questions.
