Summary0003591: more ways to set frame position and geometry
DescriptionIt would be nice to have more flexible and precise ways of setting geometry properties for frames. I was thinking (these may overlap and/or be redundant):

1) For rotated frames, an option to use a non-rotated bounding box to set coordinates and sizes
2) The ability to use real frame nodes as reference points to set coordinates rather than just bounding box keypoints
3a) Maybe the ability to set rotation by setting the angle of any refernce segment on the frame or the vector connecting any two reference points, or...
3b) to set rotation and/or scale the object size (at the current aspect ratio) by specifying the coordinates of two reference points instead of width, height, and rotation directly
TagsNo tags attached.

Do we really need this in a layout program?

I sure need it all the time for my detailed charts. And I think a layout program is the appropriate tool for the job, for the high quality text handling.

I frequently have to do calculations to figure out what coordinate values to enter for some objects.

Charts are obviously the job of a vector drawing program not a layout program
