I know how to rotate an object in Draw.io because usually there is an anchor where my mouse changes into the rotation mode. This is also explained in this tutorial:


However, a curve does not have this option:

curve example

Naturally, I could manually move every vertex, but I would prefer to have options to flip/rotate it as a whole.

I tried grabbing the curve with Ctrl, or Alt, or Shift, hoping that it would change from "move object mode" to "rotate object mode" but it does not work that way.

  • add one more object
  • press down and hold CTRL
  • select your curved line and that object
  • press CTRL + G
  • rotate it as you desire with that rotational arrow
  • when done delete that extra object


  • Any way to delete the group after this step? When I try, the arrow rotates back to its original orientation.
