After select this command, select the object which we want to do rotate.

Right-click.

Then AutoCAD asks you to specify the base point. Select any base point from where we want to rotate the object.

AutoCAD will ask for specify the angle of rotation. Give any angle as needed in 360 angle direction. The command is working in an anti-clockwise direction. To rotate any line or object on the lower side, we have to give a negative angle. e.g. -30.

The object will be rotated.

We will see one example of this command. Follow these steps
