Troubleshoot weird rotate problem
Weird thing just happened while I'm working in GIMP. Rotate began behaving wonky (it was fine before). Now it seems that one of two things happen when I try to rotate an object layer - either I end up rotating half of the image OR I get a yellow dashed box around the object, crosshairs way off center, and I can't rotate it at all. Weird thing is in the same GIMP file I was able to rotate a text layer fine.

Help ! Smile What on earth is going on?

RE: Troubleshoot weird rotate problem
The Rotate tool (like other transform tools) behaves differently whether you have a selection or not. Without a selection, Gimp simply rotates the layer. With a selection, Gimp creates a floating selection with the result of the rotation. The trick is that in this case "Select All" and "Select None" look the same but don't behave the same way.
