Feature: Enable Shift modifier to Rotate canvas in 15° increments

Recommended Posts

Please consider adding the following behavior:

 

When the user holds down Shift + rotates the canvas, constrain the rotation of the canvas to 15° increments.

 

Thank you of your consideration and lal you do.

+1 for this.

Additionally, I'm getting worn out by the number of times I'm accidentally rotating the canvas by a couple of pixels. Rotation snapping (toggle option?) would probably prevent that from happening. At the very least it needs a keyboard shortcut to get back to 0° to save revisiting the View menu.

You can already assign a custom keyboard shortcut to reset canvas rotation.

And there is a threshold of 15 degree before the canvas gets rotated so that it does not only rotate a couple degrees from the original orientation by accident.

 

Hope that helps

I did immediately find the option to assign a shortcut and did so after I posted  :wub: , but I'm not seeing this threshold. Using pinch gestures to zoom in/out it is VERY easy to rotate a tiny amount. Repeatedly.

Ok great!

 

Well that´s strange, I can´t rotate at all while zooming in and if I just attempt to rotate it has this threshold from the 0 degree position.
