Anyone knows how to set a single hotkey for "rotate 90 degrees" in UV editor?

  • $\begingroup$ Rotate once then use Shift+R? If aligning rotation to another island then possible with UV Align Distribute addon. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Jun 17 '17 at 11:26

I don't think there's a built in way to do this, so a while ago I created an add-on called UV Rotate Shortcuts.

This adds Shift+R and Ctrl+Shift+R to rotate the selected UVs by 90 degrees or -90 degrees respectively.

The rotation amount can be customised in the add-on's user preferences.

  • $\begingroup$ Dude, I am not 100% sure, but I think you have a problem in your git package: the "UV Rotate.py" file should be called "UV_Rotate.py". I could not find it in "User Preferences/Addons" untill I renamed it. Afterwards I also changed the code on line 100 to make "UV Rotate" into "UV_Rotate" in order to make things work. I might have made a mistake somwhere, but that is my experience. In any case, now everything is working and I am very grateful to you. $\endgroup$ – cubrman Jun 18 '17 at 7:54
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, one more thing. Your action does not register as a reversible command, so sometimes one can get into trouble with Ctrl+Z-ting, but otherwise, man, where have you been all mah life? :) $\endgroup$ – cubrman Jun 18 '17 at 7:59
  • $\begingroup$ @cubrman I've now updated the add-on to allow undoing. This was a silly mistake on my part. As for the renaming, people have been known to have trouble installing the zips downloaded from github (not just with my add-on). Unzip first, if that's what you did, and just install the .py. $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Jun 18 '17 at 17:02
  • $\begingroup$ I did unzip, and copied the .py in the required forlder (Win PC), for some reason Blender did not show the addon in the list. Anyway, thanks for undoing! $\endgroup$ – cubrman Jun 18 '17 at 17:30
  • $\begingroup$ Ok I can confirm that now everything works without any renaming and you can successfully undo rotation commands, thanks man! $\endgroup$ – cubrman Jun 19 '17 at 6:02
