Feature Request: "Zoom to Selection" & "Rotate Workplane(Group)" (by User1)
1) "Zoom To Selection" - PLEASE, add this future, that will fit view to selected elements. It very use full for 2D drawing process. For detailed drawing its will be more usefull then "Zoom To Fit"
P.S.: I like how it realised in Inkscape.

2) "Rotate Workplane (Group)" - this will be very-very usefull for bulians, and other operations, where rotating some groups needed.

Thank for best free 2D/3D CAD/CAM ever!

Thanks, I'm glad that you liked it.

What do you mean by "rotate workplane"? You can already step and repeat rotating, or rotate just once as a special case, by choosing "start with copy #1" and setting the count to one.

@Jonathan Westhues,
I mean that can rotate current workplane without creation any new or duplicated.
Maybe, its need create future when every group will have X, Y and Z rotation values separatly (that by default switched to zero).
To change this value it will need go inside selected group in Text Browser and change X, Y or Z rotation value (separatly from other groups).

That would be possible, but it seems contrary to the spirit of the software, where most geometry is specified with constraints. Do you find that preferable to creating a rotated workplane in terms of a line or other entity in the sketch, as attached?
