Bug Description

This has been driving me crazy for quite some time now...
(inkscape-0.48-4 tarball)

diff -r inkscape-0.48.4/src/ui/tool/transform-handle-set.cpp orig/inkscape-0.48.4/src/ui/tool/transform-handle-set.cpp
< _last_angle * (180/M_PI));
> _last_angle * 360.0);

have not been able to figure out how to activate this flash display. I get an angle message using F1 key and mouse to rotate an object, but no other angle messages at any time, steps to reproduce?

su_v (suv-lp) wrote :

Steps to reproduce:
1) draw a rect
2) convert to path
3) switch to the node tool
4) enable transformation handles
5) select all nodes
6) switch to the rotation handles (click a second time on one of the selected nodes)
7) grab one of the rotation arrows, and rotate the selection while watching the messages in the status bar
(tip: it is more obvious when rotating with 'Ctrl' pressed - in 15° steps)
