Rotator and flip question

Hi,

I have a reference fit. If the object is currently in the East side and I perform a load and slew, ekos will correctly solve the fit and position angle and will center the object perfectly, with the desired rotation.
If the object is, however, on the West side and perform the same operation, the rotator will rotation will differ 180 degrees compared to the other situation (that is, has flipped). Yes, I know that a meridian flip does not trigger the rotator. But that's not the question really. What I want to achieve is that the rotator position will be always the same independently of the object position (east or west). Is that possible? (tilting issue around...)

Hi Miguel,

the question has been asked and Toni Schriber from here has added a new feature in Align options regarding rotator behavior in the new latest release. You can find out how it does and works in these 2 threads
