Description

The rotate labels tool does not care about the rotation of the canvas.
If the canvas is rotated the area where you have to click to start rotating the label is not rotated.
So it is hard to find the are where you have to click to rotate a label.
This affects the 2.18.x-version as well as the 2.99.x
