Description MBB 2018-07-01 00:42:06 UTC
The pivot-point should be remembered after being custom-set, with a separate button to re-set the pivot point to default. (in case you lost it off-screen)

Or there should be a setting (system-wide or toggle per object) to remember it.  And a new button to re-set the pivot point to it's default. 
The side-bar under properties>rotation would be a place to have them too. 

Here is an example movie of how it works in Inkscape (and why):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a shape (triangle)
2. go to rotation mode
3. click object twice, move pivot point to a corner of the triangle
4. rotate triangle (it rotates around the corner)
5. select anything else
6. re-select the triangle and try to rotate it, it will rotate around center, not it's corner. The pivot point has jumped back. 

Actual Results:
When trying to make an umbrella, copies had to be rotated correctly in one move, or the point had to be re-set again. 

Expected Results:
It should remember the pivot point to remain in place when rotating the same object twice. 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Once set, you can copy the object and it is remembered in the copy once. But once de-selected it is lost.
When accessing the rotation via [right-click >position and size > rotate] twice, it resets in between,  because right-button is de-selecting

try rotating the triangles around the center without re-setting the pivot point

Yep, would be useful.
