How Do You Rotate a Vector in Figma?

Rotating a vector in Figma can be done with ease and precision. While it may seem like a daunting task, all you need to do is follow the steps outlined below to rotate any vector in Figma with ease.

The first step is to select the vector you want to rotate.

You can do this by simply selecting the vector with the pointer tool or selecting it from the Layers panel. Once selected, you will be able to see handles on each corner of the vector. You can then click on one of these handles and drag it around to rotate the vector.

The second step is to adjust the rotation angle of your vector using Figma’s built-in features. After selecting a handle, you can click on the ‘Rotation Angle’ option from the Properties panel located at the right side of your screen. From here, you can enter a specific angle or use the plus/minus buttons to adjust your desired angle.

Finally, once you have found your preferred angle for your vector, press ‘Enter’ or click outside of the Properties panel to complete your rotation. Your rotated vector should now appear in its new position.


Rotating a vector in Figma is an easy process that only requires a few steps. By selecting a handle and adjusting its rotation angle in the Properties panel, you can quickly and accurately rotate any vector in Figma with ease.
