Set Rotation Anchor Points


Recommended Posts

Is there a way in Affinity Designer to set Rotation Anchor Points?

So instead of rotating in the center to rotate at a different control point like bottom right, etc:

 

Here's an example of what I'm talking about....

Haha I feel dumb now lol.

 

You want to click on the icon that looks like a crosshair it's tooltip should say "Show Rotation Center".

 

Then you can drag that control point wherever you want to adjust the rotation handle

I wished it even would show that icon when selecting something and hovering over the rotation handle -- but it doesn't for me :(

What's more, when I rotate a group (containing a bitmap and lots of vectors) using "Transform" values, that group doesn't even rotate about its center :(
