Rotae Gizmo - simple question....
show user profile  peterjung
...but it is driving me mad..

why, sometimes...does the rotate gizmo appear at a location other than the objects pivot point?

I can move the pivot point to where I need it to be, but the rotate gizmo stubbornly refuses to appear at the pivot point..

it is a grouped object I am working with...should that make a difference?

The group status makes all the difference.. pivot will move to group centre.
If you need to rotate individual meshes, the better option to
Make a dummy object
align to the groups pivot with 'align' tool
select the group and ungroup it
select the objects that were the group and link them all to the dummy
