[PATCH] PcbNew Block and Module Rotate


Hi Everybody,

I was working on an smd LED project and i found impossible to rotate an LED
module by 5 or 10 degrees so i made a patch to add 5 and 10 degrees
selection on rotation dialog.

Same thing for Block selection. Only 90 degrees allowed so i change that.
I have add in to the block dialog a spin box which the user is set the
wanted angle of rotation for the block.
And once the rotate button clicked then the block it rotates about the
selected angle.
The undo redo is patched too in order to follow the block rotation.

The patch tested on Ubuntu 12.04 and it works perfect check it.
