No spinner controls for Rotation properties in CS 9?

I'm not seeing the little "spinner" controls to change the Rotation properties (like in CS 8). We don't really have to manually enter in values here do we?

I literally have no clue what the numbers do without a huge amount of trial and error. In CS 8, I would just start spinning stuff with the little arrow spinners until I got what I wanted...

I believe the numbers are for degrees of rotation

Highlight the value of the rotation you want to do and the use the up/down arrow keys (windows) to change the value. Your object will rotate as you change the value in real time.Not as nice as the scrubbers but it works.

Yes, thanks. I see another thread where we discuss this issue as well and using the arrow keys does work. Additionally, if you hold the Shift key while doing that, the values change a LOT faster if you like.

Related to this, how to I change the text orientation when I change the arrow?  Auto-rotate Text is clicked but the text remains the same.
