WISH - Rotate tool preview the numeric angle

As the subject:
It would be good if the Rotate tool will be able to preview the rotated geometry while inserting a numeric angle.

Most of the time I get confused about positive and negative rotation so the preview could avoid this kind of mistake.


Hello- I guess that would require an extra Enter to finish the command - would what be acceptible? Would it work to show a circle with an arrow indicating the + direction, once the axis has been established?

Currently, if you enable cursor tool tips (Options >Modeling aids) for Distance, the angle will show, as in my image, which may also help.


When you move an object the new position updates in realtime while you enter the number with the keybord.
The same happen with Mirror tool.

I’m expecting the same in the rotate tool.

Yep, got it, thanks.
