To rotate a pattern fill within an object without rotating the object itself, double click on the rotate tool in the toolbox to open its options. Set the angle of rotation desired and in the Options section check Patterns and make sure Objects is not checked. If you want to see the effect of the rotation on the pattern, check the Preview box.
