Rotating Multiple Objects - Each Around Own Center

4129 Views, 4 Replies

I have a drawing with many structures and each labeled with a separate MTEXT. I rotated the drawing, and of course, all the MTEXTs ended up upside down. Now I'd like to rotate them all 180 deg around each MTEXT's center. Is there a way to rotate multiple objects - each being rotated around it own center?

Thanks.

You can do this a few ways... Assuming that your PICKFIRST is set to 1 and the Text/MText is all Middle or Middle-Center justified then this is fairly easy. Have the Properties Dialog box open (CTRL+1) Select the Text/MText (or select all, and use the little pulldown at the top to only select the Text objects) and then change the rotation to 180. -- Tracy W.

Making blocks of things can be handy also in rotating objects sround themselves in bulk. Selecting multiple blocks and changing the rotation angle on them in the prop dialog (similar to how you're adjusting the text here) will rotate those blocks around their insert point to the angle you are inputting.

Point is, having the fore-sight to make blocks of as many repetitive objects first amongst other benefits allows you to make these types of adjustments as well.
