    66||[[Image(rotate-x.png, nolink)]][[BR]][[Image(rotated-x.png, nolink)]]||Place mouse cursor close to one of the circles, then click and drag. A colored sector and rotation angle measure (in degrees) appear, allowing exact control.[[BR]][[BR]]The arrow on the circle shows the direction of rotation.||
    77||[[Image(angle_display.png, nolink)]]||The piece is rotated in fixed angle increments controlled by the [wiki:AngleSnap angle snap] value. This value is displayed on the right of the status bar.||

     8||[[Image(xyz-rot.png, nolink)]]|| - Red circle performs rotation around X axis[[BR]] - Green circle performs rotation around Y axis[[BR]] - Blue circle performs rotation around Z axis.[[BR]][[BR]]You may also perform rotations using keyboard shortcuts. With default key mapping, Shift + arrow keys rotate around X/Y axis, while Shift + PgUP/PgDn rotate around Z axis.||
     9||[[Image(hinge2.png, nolink)]][[BR]][[Image(hinge1.png, nolink)]]||The origin of a piece, used by LeoCAD as rotation center, has been defined when the piece was modelled. Sometimes it has been correctly places at the position where you want the piece to rotate, sometimes it is much more questionnable, or there are several rotation center that make sense (for example Technic bricks). In this case, you can use a helper piece (see below).
