I used a morph to create a parking platform that follows the existing topography.
I now need to rotate a portion of the parking layout by a degree or 2.
What would be the best way?

I only need to rotate the portion shown in yellow.

I cant seem to multi-select all the nodes I need.
If I use the axe to chop it loose from the rest, it cuts more than what is needed.

Can I set the axe to only chop where I draw the line, and not through the entire object?

Any advice?

You can actually cut it, how you did. And after connect parts, that originally needs to be connected, with a command: Design / Modify Morph / Union

I think this is the fastest way.

Use Trim between two nodes at your junction instead of Split?

Thanks Podolsky,
I think your method works best.

I have to make 2 more cuts with the axe, to isolate the specific portion and then join them all with the Morph Union tool

I don't think there is a need for the extra cuts.
Just make the first cut and then union parts 1, 2 & 3 back together.
Or wait until you adjust part 4 and then union them all together.

Split creates a single morph out of each side even parts are not connected.

Was sure I was using trim yesterday, but now it does not work...

Of course - long time since I have done this (if at all?).

Yes, you will need the extra splits then - sorry for the wrong info.
