Quick Rotation Shortcut

Mahmoud

I have been always waiting for it changing in Archicad, a shortcut for a quick rotation !

like pressing a specific key, like the P for flipping, to quickly rotate objects, elements..etc to the most common drawing angles 0-45-90

very simple change but can make the Archicad much much more convenient !

Select object => ctrl + e => click => approx rotation => shift => click.

Hitting Shift will snap your rotation to the closes angle divided by your interval set at;

Options => Work Environment => Input Constraints and Guides => Incremental Angle

Thanks Ling !
I've been already using this method.. but I'm still wishing for a shortcut key that automatically rotates with the incremental angle. Similar to the Arrow+shift nudging shortcut, there could be an arrow + E for example to rotate clockwise or anticlockwise with that incremental angle. that would be more functional in my opinion !

I have been asking for this for years.
I used to use a simple 2D CAD package many years ago where we could just press SHIFT+left/right arrow to rotate selection by 45°.
It was brilliant.

It will definitely help decrease a reasonable percentage of the drafting time !
Thanks for joining in, Barry !
