Rotate pictures and objects in OneNote for Mac

If a picture or an object that you’ve inserted shows up sideways, you can easily rotate it on the page so it appears the way you want. This most commonly happens with inserted photos that were taken with cell phone cameras.

Do the following:

  1. Click to select the picture or object you want to rotate.

  2. On the menu bar, click Format, point to Rotate, and then do one of the following:

    • Click Rotate Right 90° to rotate the picture clockwise by 90 degrees. You can apply this command more than once to achieve the rotation you want.

    • Click Rotate Left 90° to rotate the picture counterclockwise by 90 degrees. You can apply this command more than once to achieve the rotation you want.

Tip: If you need to rotate a picture to a specific angle, apply the rotation to the source image in your favorite image editing app before inserting the rotated picture into your notes. To learn about additional ways you can format pictures on a page, see Insert and format pictures in OneNote for Mac.
