Well… I’ve been working on a rather old issue…sort of. Adding a rotate option to the Move tool. Issue #123 on Github: https://github.com/FashionFreedom/Seamly2D/issues/123
What I’ve got so far fit’s the title, but not necessarily the discussion of the issue. Added is the ability to rotate a group of selected objects after moving them. Also you can select an origin point for rotation - which defaults to the center (point) of the group of objects.
Either I can keep the Move tool like this, add a union option to it, or (more likely) create a separate new tool as Grace describes in the issue discussion - using this as a starting point. As it is now this would at least eliminate some of the intermediary clutter if one needs to move & rotate a group of objects. I’ve also put in place some of the structure to set the pen style (color, linetype, linewidth) of the Moved objects… which will also apply to the other operation tools, as they all share the same base abstract class.
