I am not a power Visio user by any means, but you would think this would be a feature that anyone could find.  I am creating a floor plan in Visio 2010 and I need to rotate one of the shapes (a chair) 45 degrees.  I can see how to rotate 90 degrees, either way, but how do I rotate it 45 degrees?

Thanks.

You will need to do it manually by use the circle that is above the shape to rotate it:

You will need to click on the circle and then drag it to rotate the shape. Move the mouse away from the circle while dragging for finer control of the rotation.

I hope this helps.
