FYI the small x that appears when you select something is the anchor. That can be dragged to another location for better anchor. – Brad Nesom Mar 14 '11 at 18:00
Is there any other GIS software with the similar "interactive" rotate Polygons option ? I Know maifold has a rotate by angle command in the transform toolbar. – Adarsh Madhavan Oct 11 '12 at 10:14
