You can use the Modify > Rotate tool:

- Select the bitmap
- Modify > Rotate
- Click the reference point (or center) for the rotation. This is the point that remains at the same position (for example the approximate start point of a line in the bitmap).

- The rotation dialog is shown. Make sure to click the button with a mouse pointer on it to indicate that you want to rotate using your mouse:

- Click the reference point for the rotation (for example the approximate end point of the same line in the bitmap).

- Click the target point for the rotation (for example a point vertically or horizontally aligned to the center point of the rotation to make a line horizontal or vertical).
