image upside-down after being minimized

Recommended Posts

I had several images open so I minimized this one (using the _ at the top-right corner) to get it out of the way. When I restored it, besides being very, very, very tiny (I had to make it full-screen in order to find it), it was upside down. There's nothing in the history to indicate that I accidentally hit some key-combo, besides which it wouldn't have been active while it was minimized. Is this something that's documented? Should I file a bug report?

Using version 1.6.5.123 on Windows 8.1 64-bit.

Hi ncJohn,
Out of curiosity, if you go to menu View ▸ Reset Rotation does it fix it?

Yes, it did. (I left it reversed until I got your reply.)

How are the View>Rotate commands different from the Rotate commands under Menu Document?

Hi ncJohn,

If possible could you provide a screen recording of this happening?

Thanks

Callum

It's never happened before or since; just the one time. I've left it reversed until I got the reply from MEB asking me about using View>Reset Rotation.

There have been instances where I go to restore a minimized image and it's gotten so small that I have to make it full-screen in order to find it. But this is the first time I've found one reversed.

The Document menu rotate commends rotate the document itself by 90° increments. The View > Rotate commands only rotate the view of the document by 15° increments, not the document itself.

Is the View>Rotate to make it easier to make edits, like with a tablet? Or what's the main purpose?

To rotate so the picture is portrait/landscape orientation. Happens occasionally that I need to do that with an image.

Wouldn't you use Document Rotate for that? Not View>Rotate?

Yes. View > Rotate is intended to make it easier to sketch at an angle, like rotating a real sketchpad to draw an arc at an angle across the page.

Okay, and I notice that that doesn't make an entry in the history, so that's a very cool feature. Thanks.
