Re: how do you rotate an object?

I have been unable to rotate objects.  Rotation is generally useful.
My specific need was in using the ``Logic'' figures.  All the gates
are vertical, but I need horizontal gates.  I tried the manual and
looked at every menu that I could find.  

As Robert said, rotation is mentioned in the FAQ as missing.  However, we
did get a snippet of code for rotating text in GTK, so we can add rotation
now.  The only problem remaining is how to do the interface and internal
changes.  I don't have any great ideas on how to do this, so any input/code
would be appreciated.

With the exception of logic diagrams, dia has now replaced xfig for
me.  With the addition of rotation, xfig will become relegated to
maintenance used for legacy diagrams.

The Logic shapes are quite simple to make, I did them in an afternoon.
I'll see if I can make the horizontal ones as well.
