The updated version of Preview has so many features I can use it instead of the complicated photoshop. However I have found there is no way to rotate/angle an inserted rectangle or square. can it be done?


You can only rotate an inserted shape by going to Tools > Rotate Left/Right...

    It's possible to rotate inserted shapes and annotations by holding the Command ⌘ key and rotating the selected element with two fingers on a trackpad: apple.stackexchange.com/a/263964/122152 – intagli Jan 18 '18 at 23:18
