Photoshop: Place Rotate View "Anchor" at initial click location.

I'm doing a lot of fine detail on a large digital painting, and I have a lot of tilt sensitive texture brushes, so I use the rotate tool a lot.

The trouble that I have, or at least, the augmentation to the feature that I'd like to see would be to rotate the canvas around the initial click location.

That way, I could rotate precisely around the region I'm focusing on. Right now, when I rotate, typically, what I'm drawing takes a ride around the rotation axis, and I have to pan over to it again.

Also, if you have "zoom clicked point center" checked in the general options, it'd be nice if the (CTL +) (CTL -) zoom shortcuts then used the cursor location as the zoom center.

There isn't a "rotate tool" in Photoshop.
Are you talking about rotate canvas?

Technically, the "Rotate View Tool"

OK, now this makes more sense.
