you know how you can rotate the object to position it. how bout a way to
rotate it to make it upside down.

Note: I am not talking about the rotate command

Z axis rotation. It's on eep's list http://tnlc.com/eep/aw/improve.html

However, the powers who be say it would require a cell database rewrite.

Yes know, I do read eep's web page often.
But that Z axis rotation would be vary useful in the object properties box.

Or even in keyboard commands (perhaps a z-axis rotation modifier key). Regardless, it's assumed any new keyboard object manipulation command would make it into the object properties box anyway, obviously. Bug Roland, Rick, and JP about it if you want it badly enough. The more people who do the more likely they'll think many people want it and will probably implement it. Oh and it helps to own a universe or be a "big name partner" too...

couldn't you use rotate command, then do time=(blah) so that it stops.. and
screw with it till you get it to where you want it..

i must have misunderstood the question then.. cuz i'm certain you could do

You can and I have many times. The annoying part is figuring out how many RPMs/second (uh, shouldn't that be RPS instead, Roland? <bonk>) to get it to work right. Degree-rotation would be MUCH simpler and easier to use. <bonk Shamus>

honestly when I first heard the rotate command i thought that's what it
WAS... like rotate 28 would move it to 28 degrees of it's normal positon
(rotating over the x axis since rotating over the y is already done with
page up/down) i was dissappointed when i heard it wasn't.. trying to figure
out the RPM thing is a pain in the ass to make objects get to the correct
angle.. *sigh* something else to annoy roland with..

I thought i was filtered, eep *smile* I was amazed to see you reply to me in
something other then a flame-thank you.

Well then, maybe I'm missing somthing. Oh well, still learning. The
implementation sucks so badly as does the amount of time I have to actually
sit down and learn it.

Helps to read the docs, eh? RTFM

You will be again if you revert to your former inadequate self.
