I am working with a fishnet of over 120,000 elements, so any editing or selection operation is inevitably lengthy.
I need to rotate this fishnet by an angle of 17 degrees anti-clockwise, but as soon as I put the fishnet shapefile in editing mode (and after having waited for quite a while), the anchor point is visualized in a location that is not the one I want. If I kept it there, the rotation would give me a wrong result. Every time I try to select the anchor and move it with my cursor, ArcGIS gets stuck (perhaps it is selecting all the squares in the fishnet once again) and I am not able to move the anchor to the desired position.
Is there a way to manually change the coordinates of the anchor point?
I would also be open to a Python/ArcPy solution to this.
