Quickly Scaling and Rotating using Handles

The Move tool also has an option for quickly scaling and rotating the selected objects. When the Move tool is active, a green dot will appear in the top-center of the selection. This dot is called the Rotate Handle and can be used to quickly rotate the selection. Likewise, a small green square will appear in the top-right of the selection. This square is called the Scale Handle and can be used to quickly scale the selection. These handles allow you to quickly rotate or scale your objects without having to change tools. Simply click and drag the handle to rotate or scale the selected objects. This option is only available when the Move tool is selected.
