Summary0016450: Add 90° "rotate left" "rotate right" buttons
DescriptionThe PP features handy symetry buttons but there is no such button for rotation.

Yet it's not so easy to rotate and even less to rotate below 0 since the input doesnt accept negative numbers.

So it would be usefull to also provide "rotate left" and "rotate right" 90° rotation buttons, in the free space right next to the "Origin of rotation" widget.
TagsNo tags attached.

Also please implement "rotate left" and "rotate right" to Scripter.

for scripter, use rotateObject() with parameter of 90 or -90 I think. Not sure we need an alias for +/-90

Anyone tested it?

afaik this test version isn't in r25074.
as i don't compile my versions, i can't test features from the source code.
but i will test it as soon as there is a new macOS build on sourceforge.

Same but on Ubuntu 22.04.
It looks there is no more easy way to install and exec scribus trunk.

hi craig
a first test says: 90° rotation works as expected.
what surprises me is that the horizontal mirror button works vertically on a 90° rotated element. (and vertical mirror works horizontally…)
it looks as mirroring works before rotating – even on an already rotated element. (not a big deal, but strange)

Thanks. yeah thats unrelated to this change though. Thats how Scribus has always worked.

in this case the 90° rotation works perfect.
