Is there a way to rotate an object a specific number of degrees if you are in edit mode? When I am in edit mode, I can't find a tool to rotate.
Is there maybe a feature I have to turn on? I just started working with Blender.

    $\begingroup$ Press Rand enter the desired rotation value. In Edit Mode there are no "objects", so there can't be a rotation property panel $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jan 15 '18 at 18:30
  • $\begingroup$ To rotate a specific amount in edit mode use the keyboard shortcut. For example pressing R 45 will rotate the selected vertices/edges/faces 45 degrees. R X 45 will rotate selected geometry 45 degrees in the X axis only. R shift Y -90 will rotate selected geometry in the Z and X axis minus 90 degrees. Pressing RR will make the rotation take place in the local axis. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jan 15 '18 at 18:30

In Edit mode, select all vertices using A, then hit R, (and possibly X or Y or Z to lock the rotation axis - if you hit it twice, it will lock to to local instead of the global axis) and the number of degrees you want to rotate.
