Summary0005980: Feature request: Global rotation value option
DescriptionWhen you use the x/y/z-rotate shortcuts, it rotates objects by 90 degrees. It would be useful to be able to customise this angle in a global setting, for example 45 degrees instead.

The reason I have the Arbitrary Transformation dialogue open so much (in 5979) is I'm always looking to rotate stuff by 45 degrees instead of 90. I'm always wishing I could just set the rotation value for the shortcuts to 45 and use those instead of having to fiddle with arbitrary transformation.

The setting could go into Edit -> Preferences somewhere and the default could be 90 so existing functionality wouldn't break. A single value could apply to all of x,y,z rotation shortcuts, or there could be a separate setting for each.
TagsNo tags attached.

As workaround, you can create a custom command in the console:

bind RotateX45 "RotateSelectedEulerXYZ '45 0 0'"
bind RotateY45 "RotateSelectedEulerXYZ '0 45 0'"
bind RotateZ45 "RotateSelectedEulerXYZ '0 0 45'"

(Mind the single quotes within the double-quoted command string)

Once that is done, you can assign keyboard shortcuts to the Rotate45 binds.

Cool - I did not know that was an option. I just tried it and it works fine.
