Remove rotation bounding box from object


Recommended Posts

Hey all.

I have imported a rectangle that was rotated 15°. When I paste it in to my doc and rotate it -15° to make the rectangle parallel to the guides, the object retains a rotated selection rectangle. Not generally a problem except the size of the rect includes the rotated bounding box, which makes the numbers incorrect. Any way to remove/reset the objects bounds after rotating?

Reset Selection Box—after reshaping, rotating, or shearing the shape, this option resets the selection box to vertical.

Can't you redraw the rectangle‽ (It is after all just a rectangle.)

Or… having rotated the rectangle back to vertical, draw a small shape within the bounds of the rectangle, and then Boolean Add.

The result will be the original rectangle, but with the correctly orientated bounding box.

This trick will also work on more complex shapes!
