12.1.29. Transformation

Transformations are convenient to transform a contour in various ways. It can be rotated, scaled, moved or a combination of these.
 
Let's try on this contour.
 
 
To transform it, we open the parameters for the contour layer and click on the Transformation tab.
 
First we will rotate it around the center of the workpiece. To find out where the center is, hold the mouse cursor over the center point (automatically created when you added the workpiece).
 
 
In the Transformation tab we put in our rotation values.
 
 
 
When you duplicate a layer with transformation, the transformations will be added to the last transformed object, as we did in tutorial 1 (The Canon Wheel).
 
 
Duplicated copies with transformations.
 
Note: In version 2.5 and later, you can click and drag the contour using the mouse as an alternative to using the move function.
