Is there any simple way to rotate a whole tikzpicture environment?

If I apply the tikzpicture option [rotate=ang] nodes seem to be unaffected.

In other words, I want to do

\begin{tikzpicture}[rotate=ang]
   "stuff to be rotated"
\end{tikzpicture}

and the whole picture, should be rotated; including all nodes.

    A simple option is to wrap the whole environment in \rotatebox{angle}{...} (don't forget to include graphicx) – Bordaigorl Sep 3 '14 at 15:49
  • Does scope support rotate? I'd test it if he had provided an MWE. – John Kormylo Sep 3 '14 at 18:21

    add transform shape. – percusse Sep 3 '14 at 20:36

I've used package rotating with

\usepackage{rotating}
\begin{turn}{ang}
   "stuff to be rotated"
\end{turn}

which ist working for me.

Just adding transform shape, as percusse mentioned, worked perfectly though.

    scope does support rotate. It also works. Thx: John Kormylo – Daniel Aug 15 '15 at 10:40
