I am using Altium designer 15.

How can you rotate a component by 45 degree in PCB mode?

I know that there are a few ways of doing it, but this is the way I use (because I can't remember the other way and it wasn't important enough for me to find out).

Go to your preferences PCB editor Under the "Other" section, change rotation step to 45deg.

    \$\begingroup\$ It is available to rotate multiple (or single) components with Edit --> Move --> Rotate Selection, add angle then left-click. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 26, 2015 at 23:56
