    I am trying to build a circuit with an Arduino Shield as one of the components. The shield gets placed upside-down from how I want it, but because the "+" home position of the shield is the corner, it wont let me rotate the part, because to do so would leave the part outside of the available area in the free version. I can't move it far enough to one side to let it successfully rotate..

    Is there any hope for this, or am I just stuck building my board upside down?

    If your board is small enough to remain within the allowable limits then:

    Do "Move group" to top left, then do "rotate group 180*"
