Illustrator CC Text not turning, acting like indesign text


Question

In my CC Illustrator, the text box won't allow me to turn on its side/rotate, every time I try to turn, the text stays horizontal and moves within the box. It is acting like text in indesign. Is there a setting I can change?

Accepted Answer

The behavior you're seeing is because you're actually rotating a text frame...much like InDesign, as you said. You can rotate the object the way you want using the Rotate Tool (R) or the Free Transform Tool (E).
