Rotation Handle

In 2D I wish the rotation handle could be frozen in position so it maintained a given relationship to the pivot point.  This could be turned on and off in the inspector bar or local menu.

You can mouseover the rotation node, then hold down the Ctrl key. The cursor changes to a Hand. Click on the node and move it where you want it. Rotate the object.

I know I'm a long time in responding.  Thanks for your info, but in the kind of work I do (scene design) it would really be handy if the rotation handle, once moved, would stay put.  I am often working with a piece of scenery in a ground plan that has a critical point that must rotate into a relationship with another piece of scenery. When collaborating with others and debating various options that require repetitive experimentation this would save time and annoyance.

At present the only thing I can see to accomplish what I think you want, is to use the classic 3d selector, in the properties under coordinate system, Extents, Entity CS, see png.  Using the X handle only.

I agree about the 2D rotation handle resetting to its original position every time you re-select an object being a P.I.T.A. one of the reasons i don't use the 2D selector much.
