Rotating Guides in Illustrator

Image of guides and trianglesI was creating triangles in Illustrator recently when I accidentally rotated one of the guidelines in Illustrator. I didn’t even realize this was possible.

If you ever need to rotate guides so you can align an object to the guide, here are the steps:

  1. Create a guideline.
  2. Right click the guideline, point at transform and click rotate.

The Rotate dialog box will appear.
