A map will typically indicate which way is north. Commonly this is done by a north arrow or compass rose. Orientation may also be shown by graticule or grid marks (e.g. lines of latitude and longitude). By convention north is towards the top of the page (thus some maps do not have north arrows), but the orientation is usually still given for a "proper" map. When north is not at the top of the page a north arrow is essential.
A selection of north arrows and compass roses are available in the Symbols Palette in the Mapdiva Library > Map Elements category. Place north arrows using the Symbol Stamp tool.
Rotate North Arrow
As needed, use the Object Inspector – Geometry pane to set the specific angle of rotation. Alternatively, right-click on North Arrow symbol and choose "detached from master." The north arrow can now be styles, further edited, and rotated freely.
