I used the rotating package to rotate the symbol 90 positive degrees and that worked well. But I also want to rotate it 270 positive degrees and then it ends up hanging down on the line below. How can one rotate symbols any degree while it stays on the same line?

You can use \rotatebox (from the graphicx package) with the origin=c option instead; a little example:







enter image description here

  • I guess that the 90 inside of \rotatebox{90} means rotate 90° counter-clockwise. The whole thing, \rotatebox{90}{B} means "rotate the letter B 90°". It gives us something similar to the Unicode character , which is U+15F6 or maybe U+15F7 Commented May 27, 2023 at 23:10
  • \rotate{270}{B} rotates the letter B three quarter turns anti-clockwise? 270° is three times 90°? Commented May 27, 2023 at 23:16

You can also rotate the whole font like this:
