Thank you for your very quick response. I will definately change the name of "angle x/y" to something more useful. You also mention, to swap the two angle inputs. Right now they are following an anticlockwise direction, do you think this is counterintuitive for the users?
I know that the ui is very wide, the simple solution would be to shrink all of the input spin boxes, but I haven't figured out a way to do this yet (set_size_request leads to strange results with overlapping widgets). As I haven't got much experience with gtk(mm) I would really appreciate if someone had some tip on how to solve this problem.
One other thing I noticed is that my feature does not work with 3d perspective cube-thingies. I might investigate what the problem is.
One last question. Right now I'm using documentVisualBounds() to get the bounding box of an item, but i then have to do some ugly adjustments to the coordinates (flipping the y coordinate and then subtract the height of the document). I'm sure there is a better way of doing this...
