These transformation tools are designed to position your object inside Layout in a more comfortable way.

Due to the fact, there were slight changes to the LayoutTool class in the last view versions,
I decided to make this a 9.3.1 and lw 11.0 version only (sorry for this)

All tools work on the primarly viewport axis only  (= not in perspective, light and camera view)
Use the right mouse button for larger step sizes (as for AddRotation and Custom Rotation: 1 Degree)

All tools currently ignore "autokey off".

AddRotation++, this tool is mainly a replacement for LightWaves own  "Add Rotation".
Unlike the original this version works on all selected objects.


Image

Allows you to rotate one / several objects around a custom center, with or without keeping the original rotation.

  Origin: Either a custom origin (by entering a value or dragging the cross indicating the center) or the average position of all pivots.
  Method: (Either keep current individual orientation of the object, or rotate it .
(can result to unexpected results with child objects)


  Popup: For quick assigning an object pivot as a rotation center.
  Numerical Input: for entering the exact values.
  Apply: For entering a numeric value / apply it to the selected object (similar behaviour like modelers tools).




Image

Allows you to scale the distance between different objects (without scaling the objects itself),
most of the functions / behavior are similar to Custom Rotation.

Method: 
Stretch allows you to manualy scale into the visibe viewport direction (ZX for top view etc...)
Stretch Flat Keeps the proportions in the ZX axis while scaling
Scale: Scales in all three axis
