I want to draw a very simple, but unrotated star, exactly like this.
But I can’t get it rotated exactly like the image. Even using Ctrl while drawing (with the default angle of 15°) doesn’t help. I have been using Inkscape for more than a year, and I do a lot of work using it, but I can’t find a simple solution to this simple problem!
Easiest way: As you drag the star point while creating the star, hold control and move the mouse to the top so that the point of the star that the mouse cursor points to is oriented at the top. The top point will then lock to the correct position. Presumably it wasn’t working for you because you were trying to drag the star point to one of the positions other than the top.
