I wish the rotate tool could lock to any plane by hovering and activating for instance with the shift key. When modelling morphs as a part of making special furniture I always find it a bit annoying, that I have to use the right-click menu and travel downwards the menu to find editing plane > pick plane, -and still the rotate tool doesn't always respect the plane and sometimes it aligns to a seemingly random geometry-face, irrelevant to the rotate command I wish to execute.
Maybe there is a one-click or shortcut to this operation?
If there isn't I would really wish for this feature in a future version of AC.

Best wishes

OK, got it now.
I found out, that if you hold and click with the rotate tool activated, you're able to define any reference angle. Maybe I should just read the whole tool feed back help-line ;)
