Description tomtomtomreportingin 2021-03-26 21:16:09 UTC
When rotating the canvas through other means besides the angle selector widget in the status bar, the spinbox starts incorrectly indicating an angle of about 180 degrees when rotating into a certain range. This occurs both with canvas input shortcuts and with the View -> Canvas -> Rotate actions.

1. Using canvas input shortcuts, rotate the canvas clockwise towards 180 degrees.

* If using discrete steps, rotating clockwise past 180 degrees will make the spinbox continue to denote 180 degrees until 0 degrees is reached. Similar behavior happens in the inverse when rotating counterclockwise.
* If using smoothed canvas input rotation, the spinbox will "snap" to an 180 degree angle while rotating towards and out of it.

In both cases, there is no functional impact. The widget's spinbox merely displays the wrong angle.

The correct angle should be displayed in the spinbox.

Since this angle indicator was not displayed in the status bar in previous versions, it is technically not a regression.

Just for the record, this bug is also present in the overview docker and was kind of present before the angle widget was introduced. I copied some code from the overview docker angle handling, which uses the range [-180, 180]. The problem is that the range of the canvas rotation is [-360, 360] so there is a mismatch between the acual angle an the angle shown in the slider (now angle selector) in the overview docker. This behavior got propagated to the angle selector in the status bar, as I copied the code from the overview docker.
The solution is to change the ranges of the angle selectors both in the status bar and the overview docker.
