    If you don't see the Text Block tool Button image , click the down arrow next to the Text tool Text tool button , and then click the Text Block tool Button image .

  4. To rotate your text, click the Text Block tool Button image on the Standard toolbar, and drag the rotation handle ( Button Image ).

    If you don't see the Text Block tool Button image , click the down arrow next to the Text tool Text tool button , and then click the Text Block tool Button image .

Tip: Some connectors and shapes have a control handle ( Control handle image - yellow diamond ) that you can drag to quickly move shape text.
