Microsoft PowerPoint has the ability to freely rotate native objects.Native objects are objects created with PowerPoint text and drawing tools.Some imported objects can be converted to PowerPoint objects and thenrotated. This article describes how to rotate an object from Clip Gallery.
To rotate a clip art object, first ungroup and then regroup the object.
Import a Clip Art Object into PowerPoint
- On the Insert menu, point to Picture, and then click Clip Art.
- Click a category, then click a thumbnail, and then click the Insert Clip icon.
Rotate the Clip Art
- Click the clip object to select it. While the object is selected, eight handles should surround the object.
- On the Draw menu, click Ungroup. You may see a message similar to the following:
This is an imported picture, not a group. Do you want to convert it to a Microsoft Office drawing object?
Click Yes to convert the object. This step breaks the object into several Office drawing objects.
- With all objects selected, click Group on the Draw menu. This makes the clip image one object, rather then many small pieces.
- On the Drawing toolbar, click the Free Rotate tool.
- Rotate the clip image by clicking one of the corner handles and turning the object around by the handle.
NOTE: You may be able to restore the object using the Undo command.
