I have rotated an object with Sketch. But, the old frame is still visible.

enter image description here

I would like to flatten it, so that in a way, I only see the outline of the object and not the old frame.

The closest you can get is to rotate the shape back to it being upright, flatten it again, then rotate it back.

A little demo:

In Sketch, rotating a flattened shape to get the bounding box to actually match the shape.

    Also, if your object is a group and the Flatten command isn't available, you can ungroup it, then Flatten, then re-group them. Commented Jun 23, 2020 at 20:09
