Watch-it - Rotate with no base point

A real head scratcher came up today, a user couldn't position a rotation base for any elements in a view

Normal rotation graphics showing basepoint

Screenshot of rotation with no basepoint, notice just a line with no arrow at the centre
After some initial investigation it still had me stumped, but I was sure it must be a visibility setting

After a good while more of investigating, Turns out the rotation base is actually related to you're current workset, and if that workset is turned off in the view you are trying to rotate the object in, you will not get a rotation base

The fix was to change to a suitable workset that is present in the view. Probably not something that would come up very often, but defiantly one to watch for!
