Rotate element in Freehand

Hi there, I've recently started using Freehand and I can't seem to rotate elements, am I missing something? I'm about to start a new role and would make good use of freehand but not being able to rotate text is limiting. Thanks Dan

Hi Dan,

Thanks for taking the time to write into Community to share your feedback about this.

It's not currently possible to rotate objects within Freehand, but this is something that our Product team is monitoring the interest for.

I will open a ticket on your behalf to track your interest for this potential feature. Please keep an eye out for an email indicating that we’ve formally tracked your feedback.

Have a great day!

Regards,
Raynor

Hi everyone, 

I have the same problem as Dan -  at this moment Freehand is not as "free" as it's supposed to be. Lack of this feature irritates a lot especially when creating custom templates with text. For now I am forced to leave the product until it's fixed and that's a bummer. 

PS Honestly I'm surprised that it's not a default feature - other tools allows you that in "free" mode. :(

Cheers 
Kamil

Hi Kamil,

Thanks for getting in touch and adding your voice to this! 

The ability to rotate elements is not behind a paywall, but rather a potential feature that our Product team are monitoring the interest for as they plan for the future roadmap of InVision.

I can certainly understand the frustration at not having a feature that is important to your workflow, but I see that you already have a ticket linked up to this feature request so rest assured that your feedback and vote have been passed on for consideration. 

Thanks so much, Kamil!

Best,
Raynor

Hi,

I would like to add my voice to this issue as well.  I created a stacked bar chart from a set of rectangles and grouped them.  I just wanted to rotate the chart and to my surprise, that was not possible.  Rotating an object is a basic usability feature.  The product team understand that missing basic features that most users expect to be included in a drawing tool is simply unacceptable.

Hi Bill,

Thanks so much for adding your feedback to this thread. We really appreciate it, and we certainly understand how frustrating it is to wait on a potential feature that would be incredibly helpful to your workflow. 

I don't see an existing ticket for you to add your vote to the feature request for the ability to rotate objects within Freehand, so I'll go ahead and create a ticket for you now. Please keep an eye out for that email shortly. You don't need to respond to the email; it's simply to formally register to interest in this potential feature for our Product team to take into consideration and pass your feedback along. 

If anybody else would like to add their feedback about this potential feature, please “ADD YOUR VOTE” using the button on the original post.

Thanks, Bill!

Best,
Raynor
