I am working in Illustrator and have created a group of wedge shapes from a pie chart, which was rotated, ungrouped, and regrouped. Given that the wedges are still placed together as a circle, and that it is rotated how can I set its current orientation as the zero-rotation orientation?

Perhaps Object > Transform > Reset Bounding Box

I'm not 100% certain what you are referring to. But this would seem to fit with your description.

Be aware that Illustrator does not store or remember basic object transformations. There's no way to un-rotate any object back to 0° other than doing it manually.

  • You can return to the reset box position by setting the transform in a script to [1 0 1 0 0 0] but you can not go back to states before that.
