show user profile  wrcwrx
im trying to rotate the pivot of an object, but no matter what, it always skews and stretches my object! why cant i rotate the pivot without it messing with my object?

reset scale before adjusting the pivot point, you have at some point scaled the object in only one or two axes. Doing that produces distortion with this sort of thing. The reset scel button is further down where the affect pivot only is.

If that doesnt work go for the full reset xform found in the utilities panel then collapse the stack.
