Objects and Rotation

Is there a darn good reason out there to explain that when i create a new object, we still do not have a built in ability to rotate the object in any direction? Seriously - I really want to know why after a 1000 years we still can not rotate custom objects in any direction.  When I bring in a revit object into Archicad it comes in with the ability to rotate in all directions - what's up with that???.

Yes I know we can add GDL to make this happen.... 

 

just saying ....

Change 2d script to a projection. And this is the likely reason it's not a default. 2d scripts are much harder to get to match the 3d rotation with out projection. Which ultimately can make things slow, although that's almost a thing of the past with today's hardware.

 

I'm guessing the import function for Revit does just this

Yes i know I can add code to my custom GDL objects, but i have about thirty objects and it really just pisses me off that Graphisoft has not been proactive for the last 1000 years and made this happen automatically.

I totally agree because this one command makes Archicad looks ridiculously stupid to a new user who has been using other 3D softwares. This should be automatically coded in.
