Rotate? Orbit? during an assembly in fusion

I just started using fusion 2013 and have a small 3 part assembly right now. I have 2 of the pieces mated already and they move freely being that there is a pin holding them together. Though my 3rd part is facing the wrong direction and I cannot seem to figure out how to turn it around. I know this cant be as hard as it seems to be. Im used to solid works where you can select individual parts and move them around during the assembly process, on this program when you go to move an object in a forward or back direction its fine but to change the direction the body is facing I cant figure out. When you go to orbit it selects all the parts in the drawing which doesnt help me. help please??

Don't confuse Free Inventor Fusion with Autodesk Inventor.  Autodesk Inventor is the equivalent of SolidWorks.

Try this. Select the move command and double click the part you want to move. Double clicking will select the entire part. You should be able to use the triad to change the orientation of the part as you need.

 

Hope this helps.

JD;

 

You are a huge asset to the community and I appreciate your efforts. For Fusion questions please try and help and not just tell folks they are using the wrong product. Thanks for all your help and understanding.
