preview of rotation does not work
I am new to GIMP but have worked out how to do most of what I need to do. Using v2.10 on OSX (Mavericks).

Using Tools/Transform/Rotate.
The menu appears and I can rotate by degrees by dragging the slider or using the Angle.
Thats ok.

But everything I have seen on other posts suggests I should see the actual image itself rotate.

What I actually see is an outline of the image rotate - but it doesn't show me the picture rotating within it. i.e.., its difficult to see how much rotation I want when I can't see the image itself rotating.

When I press the ROTATE button, the orientation remains as it was but the image has rotated within it (hope this makes sense)

I am stupid I know - but it can't be that hard to rotate an image by degrees and see the results of the rotation on the image before I accept it...

I found this video:

Its windows I know, but I don't see that behaviour.

If I use Image/Transform/Rotate then I only get the 90 degree presets

Please help a newbie...
