The question is: where is located the rotation center in that case?[[BR]][[BR]]If there is no [wiki:MultipleSelection:Activepiece active piece] in the group (piece with blue outline), the rotation center is located on the geometrical center of all selected pieces. This works well for a symmetrical group of pieces.||

    15 ||[[Image(rot-mult3.png, nolink)]][[BR]][[Image(rot-mult4.png, nolink)]]||If there is an [wiki:MultipleSelection:Activepiece active piece] (outlined with a blue border), the rotation center is placed on the origin of the piece. For more details, see MultipleSelection.||

    1717=== Use of helper piece ===
    1818
    1919||[[Image(helper1.png, nolink)]]||If you want to rotate something for which no possible center of rotation fits your needs, you may temporarily add a piece whose origin is located at the right place.||
    20 ||[[Image(helper2.png, nolink)]]||Thin, long piece (Technical axles, Bar Light sabre blade) are fine for that job. [[BR]][[BR]]- Select all pieces to be rotated including the helper piece. Make sure that this one is the [wiki:MultipleSelection:Activepiece active piece].[[BR]]- Perform the rotation.[[BR]]- Delete the helper piece.||
