A very simple question I should think. When adding symbols (circles, rextangles etc) is it then possible to resize these in all directions using the "grabbers" encapsulating the symbols? Likewise for bitmaps? Can a symbol be rotated to any degree and not only 90, 180, 270? I a selection of symbols are grouped together can these be rotated and resized as a whole as described above? An immediate answer to these questions might be "Well, download the evaluation version and try it out". I will have very limited time to try things out the next 15 days and I don''t want to "waste" this valuable time. Thanks you.

Hi, The answer to all three of your questions is ''Yes''. Diagram shapes, textnodes, imagenodes etc., can be resized along all 4 sides using the provided grab handles. Symbols can be rotated programmatically using the Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.RotateCmd or interactively using the Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.RotateTool, through any angle that you choose. Interactive rotation is demonstrated in the DiagramBuilder sample, while programmatic rotation is as simple as creating the RotateCmd, specifying the involved nodes, setting the rotate angle, and executing the command. The following code should give you an idea, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.RotateCmd rotate = new RotateCmd(); rotate.Nodes.Add(mysymbol); rotate.Degrees = 130; this.diagram1.Controller.ExecuteCommand(rotate); You can use the Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.GroupCmd/UnGroupCmd or the interactive GroupTool/UnGroupTool to select and group/ungroup the nodes that you want to function as a group. Groupes will move, size and rotate as a single entity. Please let us know if you have any other questions about the product. Regards, Prakash Surendra Syncfusion Inc.,

T. Stroyberg, I have been using the Syncfusion''s diagram for about a year now, and it is fantastic. It is very flexible, easy to use, and extremely powerful. That is my opinion from my direct experience using it. And their support is amazing too. I''m just offering my two cents, because when I was evaluating Syncfusion I was curious how other existing customers felt about the product. Good luck.
