Tutorial - Editing Points (rotating point)

Civil 3D 2014 includes a tutorial that contains a Lesson 5 - Editing Points.  One step in this tutorial is shown in the appended image, suggesting that if one hovers one's cursor over the diamond-shaped point grip, one will see a menu of options, including one enabling rotation of the point marker.  

 

No such luck.  Although all of our various "tooltips" are turned on, nothing happens when we hover over this grip on a point until we hold down the left-click, at which time we can drag the point label about, but nothing else.  

 

How do we activate these legendary options for point editing?

 

Thanks.Exercise 5_ Editing Points ROTATE.jpg

McL,

The Legendary Option is working for me. Are you sure you have a COGO Point?

Make sure the Sysvar GRIPMULTIFUNCTIONAL is set to 3.

Jeff,

I'd not heard of that one before. I learn something every day on this forum. Thanks.
