Add new function to rotate tools. 

Workflow:
  • Select one or more point features
  • Select one or more line features
  • Select tool Rotated perpendicular or Rotated parallel
  • All selected points should be rotated depending on direction of closest selected line feature
    • If point exist in a vertex average value of segment direction should be used, see picture
Note: Rotate symbol must be activated by selecting a rotation field.

Before and after using this rotate tool:

This is part of the Cartographic Representation tools. The help docs and training page should be able to help you solve this.

Excellent idea. We need to rotate valves (points) along water conduits (polylines).

There was an extention tool in 9.6 that worked beautifully to do this.
