Creating a line image using the COGO feature, then placing it over a Airel photo. GM places the Image where its soposed to go but I Need to rotate it a few degrees and minutes a certian direction off my selected start point. Is there a way to do this? Perhaps using up and down arrow keys or mouse perhaps or in some form where I can watch it as I move it on the screen to line it up with my Airel photo
Thanks!

    I wasn't entirely clear, do you want to rotate the image or the line? You can't directly rotate an image, but you can reposition it by entering control points by right-clicking it on the Control Center, then selecting the option to modify the layer position.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Rotation of existing features is not currently supported, but is on our todo list to add for the v11 release this summer.

    Thanks,
