Feature request #1787
Line and polygon rotation
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||11847|
QGIS needs an option to rotate both polygon and line objects. It should allow free rotation with mouse, where the default anchor point is the centroid and a plugin perhaps, where one can specify the amount of degree of rotation and the anchor point (by clicking on the map).

I would add also scaling.
Such tools are commonly used in CAD programs and allow for a much smoother digitising experience. AutoCAD for example has also the option to define the scaling or rotation origin point.

The Plugin "Rectangles, ovals digitizing tools" allows to rotate a choosen polygon around centroid by mouse.
The rotation around a free choosen point is a part of the "CAD Tools" plugin. This is a little bit tricky, because the rotated object appears in a memory layer.
Perhaps, the plugins could be the entry point to realize the wishes as core functions.
