It seems you havent read the answers or didn't try properly:

If you zoom fit or even change the pivot center of rotation you shouldn't have any issue or lack in feature....
This seems to me that really you miss to read some documentation...
There is an Icon for zoom fit or you find it in the menu:
Menu->View->Standard views->Fit all
It's the first entry in the submenu.

It is possible that there is an error, then a bug report is required, but it is definitely not a feature request (for something new).

Using a FC git revision from here https://github.com/realthunder/FreeCAD_ ... 3/releases appimage I only found trackball and turntable both of which don't revolve object by their center and orbit when revolving.
FC crashes when using gesture rotation + focus (holding H key) - part still doesn't rotate about its center after panning the part around.
Made bug https://www.freecadweb.org/tracker/view.php?id=3394
FYI the official FC FreeCAD_0.17.13452.glibc2.17-x86_64.AppImage doesn't crash on Ubuntu 16.04 ...
I also cannot find any issue with Gesture in FreeCAD-asm3-20180306-b7b9031f-827d2c0.glibc2.17-x86_64.AppImage

Anyway if you want to get your 'experimental' release to be fixed, you need to report an issue on the author GH page
https://github.com/realthunder/FreeCAD_assembly3
and not make useless noise at official FC tracker

Any plans to improve part view rotation? Currently it has to orbit and cannot freely rotate in place what it does is orbit and makes large loops around the center of the part. Its making FC mediocre.

You had been told twice before how to rotate a part. The bug reporting guide says you should discuss issues here in the forum. That includes reading the answers. You did not link this conversation to the bug report. I will close the, as it works perfectly!

For your next bug report, which hopefully will be useful, please attach an example as simple as possible.

Made a screencast.

It still orbits if zoomed out rendering the rotation very buggy.

It seems you don't pay attention to suggestions..
I said 'Zoom Fit' and not 'Zoom Out'

Denying this is a horrible bug is sad, but closing a legitimate bug is worse. Made screencast to prove my point. Likely last screencast anyways.

I found a lot of other bugs also, wonder why they aren't being closed too. Bug I filed should be reopened https://www.freecadweb.org/tracker/view.php?id=3417
