Description

Given that it will mostly be set just once for a project, the rotation spin box should be moved to project properties to avoid cluttering the (already complex) main QGIS ui. A couple of other fixes suggested:
- change the spin box to a QgsDoubleSpinBox with a clear value of 0, so that the reset button is added
- set keyboard tracking off for the widget (http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qabstractspinbox.html#keyboardTracking-prop)

History

#1 Updated by Paolo Cavallini about 5 years ago

-1 for me. As an hidden option, it will go unnoticed, and will be more difficult to use interactively.

#2 Updated by Sandro Santilli about 5 years ago

Hey thanks for the keyboardTracking property, I didn't know about it. I saw you added that with commit 21c4cbbe1a600a4b3a1d5313bc07feafe2901aea (for the record).

I also think the rotation value should be visible, FWIW

#3 Updated by Nathan Woodrow about 5 years ago

-1 for hiding it. I do think it belongs in the status bar. A more improved version in the future could be a small wheel in the top left of the map.
