Quick rotating question

How do I rotate an imported object "slightly".  When i use the rotate tool, i select my imported building model but it snaps to the nearest 90 degree increment.  This is generally helpful, but in this case I need it to be rotated, in example 91 degrees, not 90.  Can i type in the objects rotation manually?  Or how do I turn off this autosnap feature in the rotation tool?

Thanks all,

Vince

nerver mind, i found it in the FAQ.  Holding shift key while rotating disables auto 45 degree snapping.
Thanks

Hi Vincent, there's currently no way to type in absolute values for the orientation, and Shift + Rotate is all you've got at your disposal.

Not sure if this is just me as a user, but when doing rotation of objects, if I move the mouse further out from its rotation point whilst still active in rotation, the increment of change is much smaller so you get a more fine tuned change in rotation.

Yes, that's true, Peter.
