great idea. But there is a existing great tool for rotate and move parts, the transform tool.
I'm already aware of the FC transform tool...
but my Mover can rotate and move an object on a selected Edge axis, normal of a Face center axis or center of the object itself...
As far as I know, this is not possible with the transform tool.
Moreover my Mover will be able, in a close future, to Move and Rotate a hierarchical App::Part object or a Body object referring to a Face normal or an Edge, and later Move and Rotate using an external Edge as reference;
also these features are not available in the transform FC standard tool as far as I know.
If you can combine your ideas with the transform tool, I'm sure, this will be a very power- and helpful tool for all cad designers. Please check out the triball tool from Ironcad for inspiration:
Imagine this great existing tools combined into one with the draft snap-tools ...

I'm am already aware of your posts, but my tools have this Gui and their way of doing the Moving Aligning feature.
Probably you could obtain the same results of the triball with my Mover in the next future, but my Tools are made in python and for sure their Gui is simpler than the IronCad one, but this is what I'm developing, and this is covering some user case that I needed ...
