FS#2301 - Rotate preview on/off


I believe prior QCAD version there was no rotating preview. The rotating preview shows the outcome regarding to the chosen center point. I know that it is also common for move/copy. However, for me it is very confusing and difficult to chose the correct center point for a rotation if I’m constantly been distracted by the most of the time overlapping preview of my selection. This said if the drawing is very detailed I have to zoom in extremely to be able to snap to the right entity. That wouldn’t be necessary without the preview. Additional rotate a large drawing selections will compromise the performance - CPU is going like crazy.

It would be nice to have an option to turn this preview on/off.

Isn't the main difference between the two procedures in the gif files that the second example uses the Option Toolbar while the first example is by rotate Dialog?

The method by Option Toolbar always creates a preview.
