Rotate Individual Characters
Tutorial Category: Illustrator
Sometimes text can get a little boring. Here’s a way to rotate individual characters and make that text a little more fun!
Using the Type tool, type out some text.
Now go to your Character palette. If it’s not open, go to Window > Type > Character. Make sure all options are showing by clicking on the flyout menu and choosing “Show Options”.
Using the Type tool again, highlight one of the letters you have typed.
At the bottom of the Character palette, there is an option for Character Rotation. Type in a number of degrees. For example, I chose 20. You can enter positive and negative values.
Do that for as many characters as you’d like. Here’s my final result:
Go have some fun rotating characters!
