Orientation X Y Z & Rotate Object in 3D

Question

Maybe I am the only one, but I found it hard to get my head around the Axis when using the Modify> 'Rotate Object in 3D' dialog box.

Can you therefore please :

 

1. Add the letters of the axis X, Y & Z into the working plane as floating text next to the line if possible.

2. And make a 'preview' button in 'rotate object in 3D' dialog box.

 

Attached file for clarification of what I mean.

😅

Especially since it also depends on the plane view your in!

The X Y and Z could, alternatively, be colour coded in the dialogue box to match the axes on screen.

 

I'd like this for the "move" command as well. I'm forever doing that by trial and error.

Very recognizable.

Still wouldn't mind the X Y Z letter in the working-space.

That's something... thanks.

It's a bit a shame the letters stay near the cross point of the axes, so when you have your model in the center they are hard to read.

Would be nice if they stayed near the border of the screen.

For us lighting people its easy..... Red Green Blue - RGB - X Y Z

 

Plus or minus is denoted by a thicker Axis line.

 

What would be really good is when the Rotate 3D command is running, the Axes (and labels) appear. This could happen whether they have been enabled or not for the rest of the time.....

Both of these seem both simple and really helpful.

..just a gentle reminder!
