Help!  I have thousands of 2'x3', 3'x4', 3'x3' squares and rectangles to map and all need to be placed in arbitrary rotated positions based on their placement on the ground.  Point features will not work for this, and it needs to be done working within an MXD (non-programmatically).  Thanks in advance for your assistance on this.

The rotate tool in edit tools will allow you to rotate features, is that what you're looking for?

By the way, you've posted this in the GeoNet Help section, which is specifically for help using the GeoNet site. Tagging Managing Data for better visibility.

Can you expand on what it means to be "placed in arbitrary rotated positions based on their placement on the ground"?

Is rotate angle is same for all polygons?

Apologies for tagging in the GeoNet area.

I "re-discovered" the rotate tool - d'oh.  Thanks all.
