Cura 4.1 miss a way to rotate by typing the angle. It annoys me so much rotating that wheel. Please, someone knows if there is a way to enable a text input for rotations? Thank you.

    I don't think there is a way to do this.  You could add a feature request to github:

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues

     

    bugs and feature requests are paid more attention to over on github versus here in the forum.

     

    Did you know you can hold down the Shift key and get down to 1 degree rotations?  Also if you are printing the same part often then it's probably worth it to rotate it in CAD before creating the STL.  Occasionally I do this for parts that I print dozens of.  Also if you are rotating the same part the same rotation 10 times, you can rotate it once and then do multiply *after* the rotation and cura remembers the rotation.  Probably none of these tricks help you but maybe/hopefully one will.

    Thank you gr5, github answer is what I was expecting to hear.

     

    And also thank you for the tip. Using mouse/touchpad to change angle is not a good thing for me. I always need the full control to tweak and repeat processes.

    I did! It is actually not a problem to me. I just want report that something is missing. They can manage the way they need. And since it is duplicated, it shows many people have the same issue.

    If you create a feature request at github, it will be marked as a duplicate of this issue:

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/2779

    You could add your 2 cents there, but also read why this feature is more complicated than it may seem.

    Oh, how this can be more complicated, since it already has the feature to rotate things. Well, thanks for your suggestion anyway.
